Thursday 23 and Friday 24 June / 1pm - 2pm / FACT Foyer / FREE, booking required


Incorporating performance, walking and field recording, artist Tim Shaw offers a sound-responsive journey through urban space, immersing you into a familiar yet abstracted environment. Intersect plays with the sonic sphere through space and allows participants to navigate through a variety of composed and ‘naturally occurring’ environments facilitated, processed and remediated by the artist.


During a 40-minute led walk through an area of Liverpool, you will wear wireless radio headphones which will receive an audio feed of live recordings, locational radio broadcasts and electromagnetic energy from you immediate environment.


Sounds will be processed, layered and re-introduced live by the artist directly into your headphones as the walk continues. Using a radio receiver, electromagnetic pick up coils and a variety of different microphones, a diverse range of sonic material will be collected, processed and broadcast. A live improvisation with the immediate soundscape, unique each time it is performed, this piece plays with memory, intuition and impulse.
