As digital technology enables us to move in and out of audio on location, producers and artists are responding to the new ‘storied space’ in a variety of ways. Join Hamish Sewell, independent audio storyteller, podcaster and founder of the geo locative project, Soundtrails (, as he discusses his latest study trip to the UK. Here he explored some leading geo locative projects and met with leaders in the field. From ‘experience designers’ to slow journalism to ambient literature: Hamish will discuss his findings, the current trends, opportunities and roadblocks in this new and exciting field. All are welcome to the seminar on Friday 17 May at 1.00pm at QUT Kelvin Grove. Please register at the Eventbrite site.
