An audio guide with multi-layers of field recordings mixed with everyday people’s stories. On the one hand, the tour is a nostalgic imaging of Bournemouth, on the other it is like overhearing people talking on the bus. Snippets of conversation fade in and out of your hearing range, while sounds of the out-door world intrude into your thoughts.
A special commission for Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival 2012.
- Devised by Joe Stevens and developed with Jo Tyler.
- Duration 45mins
- Thanks to Bournemouth Libraries, Bournemouth University and the Streets of Bournemouth project for use of their audio archive.
