Distance Drifts are remote walks designed to get participants walking alone together in creative and curious ways. To coincide with Sound Walk September, project curator Sonia Overall invites you to participate in a Distance Drift walking collage of found sounds.

To join in live you will need a mobile device and a Twitter account. Follow @soniaoverall and #DistanceDrift to receive the soundshot score at 10am on the day. Using the Twitter thread, we can share responses, connect with other walkers and discuss our experiences.
