A LISTEN commission

Easy to use sound walk, downloadable app for mobile phones.

As you arrive at a series of familiar and surprising locations you will hear voices and sounds conjuring impressions and stories of life and work in Frome. This compelling sound walk is based on the oral histories collected by Home in Frome over the last 10 years.

SATSYMPH have over 10 years experience of designing virtual user-experiences for mobile media. These virtual experiences in the real world bring to life cultural-historical events and scenarios and/or overlay a geographical area with art, poetry and music.

Part of LISTEN, a summer of sound art hosted by Black Swan Arts and curated by composer Helen Ottaway. Funded by Arts Council England, National Lottery Heritage Fund, Frome Society for Local Study and Frome Town Council.
