Sorry, this is a mite complicated! I’ve made ‘mirror soundscapes’ (trial soundscapes) of all the soundwalks, or, if you prefer, ‘dark tourism trails’ specially for the Being Human festival so that you can at least have some idea what they sound like and what the experience of doing ‘a mobile immersive media soundwalk’ is like. I will delete these after the Being Human festival finishes (23 November 2019). This page contains links to all the permanent soundwalks and instructions on how to get them on your phone.

NOTE: these walks are deliberately not your modern obsessive ‘quick-fix-get-on-to-something else’. They are meant to be absorbed slowly, and not necessarily in a single outing or walk. Some of them, you will notice, are geographically quite spread out and involve getting from one place to another by car, bike, bus, paraglider, whatever, then starting the trail again. You may find this interesting, or frustrating, or it may not even work very well. It’s all a bit of a risk! Feedback very welcome. Write to satsymph@gmail.com
