Immerse yourself in audio field recordings and soundscapes co-created between Hong Kong and London.

The project is a sound-based artistic collaboration between students from City University of Hong Kong and Wimbledon College of Arts, University of the Arts London. Led by Ryo Ikeshiro (SoundLab, School of Creative Media) and Tom Tlalim (Centre for Creative Research, Wimbledon College of Arts), the artists use field recordings and listening as a framework for encouraging dialogue and cultural exchange between those living in Hong Kong and London – places that are geographically remote but nevertheless share a long history. The act of listening attentively whilst recording, playing back and mixing field recordings can make one attuned to subtle variations in our everyday sound environment, and help us become receptive to those of others. The immersive experience provided by spatial audio augments the possibility of putting oneself in another’s shoes (or ears).
