When one travels on foot, there is a deliberate slowness, a marking of time, allowing contemplation and consideration of occupied space, one step at a time.  

There are times that one will stumble. Not just physically but also accidentally upon things, events or ideas that otherwise would not have occurred without walking.

By acknowledging these ’stumbles’, being drawn into the unknown, accepting of the mystery that awaits, we as walking artists encounter new tempos and longing, for something greater than just the moment. Not just a wandering but a wondering as well.

Bringing together three very different artists, Alison Lloyd, Michael Branthwaite and Trevor H Smith, as well as researcher Fiona Hesse, this discussion will journey with their moments of stumbling and maybe encounter a shared path….

Get behind the microphone to discover how one makes compelling audio recordings that engage both armchair listeners and those of us out and about on foot. We are delighted to have brought together four creatives who have travelled to remote places, revealed hidden histories, and captured the soundscapes and voices of past and present, to enable us to sit back in comfort or stride forward to listen to what is unseen.

Immersive sound walks have been around for a few decades, enjoyed by individual listeners or in small groups of listeners. Award-winning author and radio producer, Horatio Clare teaming up with the BBC, has hugely increased the audience for sound walks. His narrative combined with quality soundscapes recorded on foot in remote areas, has generated hundreds of thousands of new listeners to a phenomenon know as "Slow Radio".
