Locative audio consists in the capacity to locate a sound in a physical space and reproduce it when the users –equipped with a smartphone or any other device that has GPS and an audio file player– find themselves in the specific place. Although it is quite clear that its usefulness is wide-ranging (from tourist guides to even navigation aids for the blind), what this project proposes is to develop sound and narrative art works thanks to the coming together of producers, sound artists and writers.

During a workshop, held from 1st to 6th November, participants learn how to use the different technical resources available, experiment with script writing, working with audio files and they create projects to experiment with their new skills. Later, the obtained results in the workshop as well as three European locative media projects developed in Hangar, Barcelona, will be shown at LABoral.

Participating artists: Fred Adam and Verónica Perales; Escoitar.org; Isabel Espín; Julie Faubert; Cristina Moreno García, Olalla Hernández and David Aguilar Sánchez; Alejandra Pérez; Luca Rullo; Enrique Tomás; Helena Torres; Lilia Villafuerte
