Taman Tugu: Interference/Resistance

Multiple locations
40 minutes
Sound walk

Walk the Taman Tugu forest trails; a reclaimed jungle in the centre of Kuala Lumpur. The sonic world of the jungle will be at turns merged with, augmented, and disrupted by electronic sounds that were created from field recordings gathered in Taman Tugu park itself.

Real-world and recorded sounds will combine to create an immersive musical experience. Deep within the park, the sounds of the city will die away completely and the sounds of nature take centre-stage. At the edges of the park, where the skyline of Kuala Lumpur becomes visible, the sounds of the city encroach on, and disrupt the sounds of nature.

This is a unique location – a reclaimed green space teeming with wildlife, in the centre of a modern metropolis. ‘Taman Tugu: Interference/Resistance‘ is a location-specific meditation on the fight to preserve these kinds of spaces in an increasingly urbanised world.

The piece is performed through the Echoes app which can be downloaded for free at
