Hamish Sewell is the founder and primary audio producer with the geo locative platform Soundtrails. He has an extensive background in documentary radio and oral history and his works have won him international recognition and awards.

For the last six years, Hamish has built Soundtrails into one of the more successful locative apps of its kind: now operating commercially across 15 sites in Australia, from Myall Creek (the massacre site) and Nimbin (counter culture capital) in northern New South Wales, to Nambour in southern Queensland.

All Soundtrails afford a highly immersive cultural tourism experience, and are each a study into crafted audio, community building and the locative experience.

Hamish is about to step into a PhD with Macquarie University, focusing on Memory Making and Locative Apps.
