Walking piece details
“Growing up in Strathroy was like growing up anywhere else. Drinking beer, fishing, murder, suicide, drinking beer.”
“Strathroy Stories” is an immersive, spatialized sound piece that explores space and place through a series of adolescent and teenage memories of people, places, and events. This work explores the notion of memory as a dynamic, malleable construct that falls somewhere between archival and living narrative.
This piece is intended to enable a hybrid listening experience where the listener will be at times unable to distinguish real from virtual, thus creating a sort of Schizophonic experience.
