An immersive soundscape designed for listening while riding the train between Redfern and Carlton. Make sure that your volume is set so that you can still engage with the world around you while you are on your journey. Listen for shimmering drones, the hissing of trains, and whispers beckoning from outside the tracks...
Thanks to the James Eric Bird Collection of Steam Trains of NSW for being a free archive of steam train recordings available under Creative Commons, Gail Priest for being a mentor figure throughout the process of creating this work, and Shopfront to making the development of this work possible through the 2022 ArtsLab season.
P.S: As this soundscape uses real-time location data, there may be points along the track (such as long tunnel sections) where location data does not function properly and the journey's audio does not play back. If this happens, you can manually play the echoes by selecting them within the app.
