The soundscapes are accessed by audience members touching the drawn works across the walls and floors at Articulate Liechhardt. Made in collaboration with Warren Armstrong this site responsive experimental work explores ideas of map making, sonic places, community interaction with sound. 

The project uses Bare Conductive Touch boards, binaural field recordings, laptop and capacitive circuitry.
