Soundpaths: Moston & Harpurhey
Soundpaths: Moston & Harpurhey launches today as part fo SICK! Festival. This has been a huge project and I'm really excited to share it. I developed a brand new phone app with the people at Echoes.xyz in order to deliver an immersive piece of music in Moston and Harpurhey in Manchester, and the app is available to download on iOS and Android now. You can download the apps, and find out more here: https://www.soundpathsmoston.com/
Here is some more info from the SICK! Festival website:
Experience your local area in a brand new way using music and sound through your phone.
Think you know all about where you live?
Think again, as Soundpaths provides a breath of fresh air in more ways than one.
Whether you’re looking to explore the neighbourhood, take a gentle stroll or go for an energetic run, Soundpaths will take you on a sonic journey through the parks and streets of Moston and Harpurhey via music and sound from a phone app. Feel your mood lift as GPS tracks where you are along the route, changing the soundtrack to boost your physical and mental wellbeing.
Amsterdam-based composer Yonatan Collier has been working with communities in Moston and Harpurhey, and Brighter Sound, recording the hums of nature and the urban landscape and incorporating them into his music, creating an experience that is both new and familiar. You’ll even hear a sermon from St Dunstan’s Church woven into the music as you pass by. Maybe you’ll experience your local area in a whole new way, see beauty where you hadn’t before and create new memories about a place you thought you knew.
Yonatan Collier is a musician, performer, composer and sound producer. He has been signed to both major and independent labels, performing in several bands at venues and festivals across the UK and Europe. His music has been featured in TV shows and films, and he’s currently working on a PhD.
Brighter Sound is a creative music charity based in Manchester, UK. Rooted in the North of England, they change the lives of individuals through music, support and promote diverse talent and act as a catalyst for change in the music sector, from education to industry.
