A Conversation for Robot and Fly

Walking piece details

Duration 13 minutes

A Conversation for Robot and Fly is a sound-work in three movements. Using sounds collected on walks in rural Leicestershire, combined with snippets overheard conversations, and the sounds of the living, breathing art school building, the work has taken many forms and connects many places. This iteration sees the work re-installed as a geolocated sound file at its original site, Birmingham School of Art, Margret Street Birmingham (UK).
The work is hosted via the Echoes App and is triggered as you approach the Birmingham School of Art from New Street Station or equivalent distance from any direction.
