Carnaby Echoes covers several diverse musical styles from jazz, reggae, rhythm & blues to rock and hip-hop. As you walk around the Carnaby Village, listen to interviews and music, and view pictures relating to key music venues, clothes shops, nightclubs and magazine offices that attracted music fans and sub-cultures to the Carnaby area.
Artist Lucy Harrison explores the little known music heritage, from 1930s jazz clubs such as the Nest and the Florence Mills Social Parlour, to the introduction of Ska to the UK by Count Suckle and Duke Vin at the Roaring Twenties Club in the 1960s. Vibrant plaques on key buildings mark these locations, guiding visitors on a tour through history.
‘Lucy Harrison, an artist who uses places to get to people’s stories, has uncovered a new old Carnaby Village. One that’s still musical, but not so clichéd. One where histories jump, stop-start, fold back on themselves, fast forward, fade and emerge again, louder, stranger, but still connected. One where the stories are unknown, forgotten or never heard.’ Miranda Sawyer
The Carnaby Echoes app is by artist Lucy Harrison and is commissioned by Shaftesbury PLC.

Bridge Tales has been developed by Film and Media students from the University of the West of England with support from Clifton Suspension Bridge Trust and Calvium.
You'll hear the stories of people who were on the scene when Sandy battered the shore, along with stories from people who are leading the rebuilding and you will hear from those who warn about rebuilding on a part of land so at risk from nature.
When engaged in the tour, your phone actually knows where you are! You can walk at your own speed, stop and listen to stories, but if you get bored -- and we're sure you won't -- you can continue on to another story.
If you're away from the boards, you can listen to the stories in armchair mode.
Nine pieces were commissioned from a wide range of composers and poets, inspired by historical research and based on words from original sources of fascinating stories. You can hear a haunting
anthem by King's Chapel, a composition about the concept of infinity that will mesmerise you at the gates of Emmanuel College, a jaunty song about Hobson's Horses on Trumpington Street, or polemical raps and blues about the fights for equality on the pavements by the Market Square, so listen in to explore these places with new sounds in your ears!
The songs and poems that feature were developed with local choirs, schools, artists, and members of the community in Cambridge, supported by leading historians and lyricists, composers and musicians connected to the City. For those who can’t get to Cambridge the armchair mode lets you manually play songs wherever you might be.
The Cycle of Songs is an Arts Council England-funded project to the award-winning Pilot Theatre and Historyworks, commissioned to coincide with the visit of the Tour de France to Cambridge. You will be able to listen to these words and songs all inspired by iconic locations and quirky stories geo-located along the route that the cyclists travel for their visit to Cambridge on 7th July 2014, designed to leave a digital legacy to delight residents and tourists alike.
Ein Schnitzeljag-Spiel in der Blockheide im niederösterreichischen Waldviertel.
Eigentlich wollte der Kinderbuchautor Martin Auer den Besuchern und Besucherinnen des Naturparks Blockheide ein paar Lieder schenken. Genauer gesagt: schöne Steine, die Musik machen, wenn man sie berührt. Doch in der Blockheide treibt sich das wilde kleine Waldschratkind herum. Das will sie alle für sich alleine haben und hat die musikalischen Schätze doch glatt versteckt. In Höhlen, auf Bäumen, unter den seltsam geformten Felsen der Blockheide. Wer sie finden will, muss sich auf Schatzsuche begeben und die Spur des wilden kleinen Waldschratkinds verfolgen.
Mit der App könnt ihr das Waldschratkind sehen und hören, und wenn ihr die Aufgaben löst, auch die Lieder und Gedichte. Wenn ihr sie gefunden habt, dann gehören sie euch, das heißt, ihr könnt sie dann auch mit nach Hause nehmen und immer wieder anhören.
Für Kinder ab 5 Jahren mit ihren Eltern.

Lyt til skøre, sjove, rørende historier fortalt af beboere på Ydre Nørrrebro, gamle som unge. “Jeg er Nørrebro” er lavet af en gruppe drenge og piger fra Boligforeningen AAB Afdeling 58. Nogle har lavet lyd, andre har lavet musik og nogle har taget billeder.
---- Hvordan bruger man “Jeg er Nørrebro” ----
* Tag dine hovedtelefoner på, se på app kortet på din telefon og begynd hvor som helst. Historierne hører til gadehjørner, bygninger og butikker og spilles automatisk når du går forbi
* Stop op hvis du vil høre historien til ende, fortsæt med at gå, hvis du vil skifte til en ny
* Kommer du for hurtigt ud af en historie, kan du gå nogle skridt tilbage og den samler op hvor du slap
---- 28 historier du ikke vidste fandtes ----
* Han er 14 år og midt i en drøm. Siden han som lille var med sin mor i Føtex, har han ønsket at arbejde der, og nu er han i praktik. Han er stolt af at føle sig som en rigtig medarbejder
* Hun var Danmarks første sengekantsskuespillerinde. For nyligt da hun ryddede op, fandt hun en pose med kærestebreve fra før sin mands tid. “Min kære pusserpige”, begynder en af tilbederne sit brev til hende
* Han opsætter paraboler, det er hans job. Op til 10 styks på en dag, så folk kan fange alverdens kanaler. Andre i kvarteret hader parabolerne og går langt for at få dem fjernet. Nogle gik engang så langt som til menneskerettighedsdomstolen.
If you are in the area covered by the app selecting ëWalk Aroundí mode will enable you to utilise the GPS on your phone to play the stories. Starting anywhere on Broadgate, walk any route you like; the audio is triggered as you approach the landmarks marked on the illustrated map. To hear more of the story you can simply remain at the location, or you can move on to hear something new. In between landmarks you will hear other soundscapes, resulting in a seamless auditory experience. You can either follow the map or if youíre feeling more adventurous you can put your phone in your pocket and listen to the stories as chance takes you.
When you are not in the area or would prefer to relax in one place, switching to ëTake A Seatí mode will also allow you to listen to all the narratives on the app without leaving your chair. Simply tap on each landmark to trigger the audio.
The audio was co-produced with students from Hackney Community College who collected interviews, sound effects and observations from the public and also created their own spoken word pieces, snippets of which are used in the stories. Selecting the Lyrical Corner section of the app allows you to hear the spoken word pieces created by the students in their entirety.
On the app you will also hear stories from people who work at Broadgate, commentary about the artists who created the sculptures and installations and interviews with the public on the impact that the art and buildings have had on the surroundings.
Tot nog geen 100 jaar geleden werkten er veel mensen in en om het bos. De werkzaamheden liepen sterk uiteen. Gezinnen sprokkelden er hun hout of zochten naar bosbessen. Veel gebruik was ook sterk verbonden met de industrie: zo werd er op grote schaal zand gewonnen, eiken geschild voor leerlooisel, grove dennen geteeld voor de mijnbouw.
Deze wandeling duurt ongeveer 1,5 uur en brengt u naar de mooiste plekken van het bos.
Start en einde van de wandeling: parkeerplaats Hettenheuvel aan de N815 tussen Kilder en Zeddam.
Sie hören die folgenden Texte:
Wenn ein Pfründer einmal Wein will
Magd und Knecht
Der reiche Sommer
Schatten im Sommer
Wer läutet draußen an der Tür

Kneehigh are from Cornwall and are celebrated internationally as a theatre company committed to creating magical, inventive and entertaining experiences for all.
As part of the Connections Programme, Anna Maria Murphy, local poet and Kneehigh ‘Word Witch’, has been walking the roads less travelled of Cornwall, collecting stories and memories from people she meets along the way. Anna then edits and exaggerates the collection to make an entertaining, and often moving, living landscape rooted in real people and places. This app allows you to listen to dramatisations of stories collected in Perranporth, a small resort town on the North Cornwall Coast with a vibrant history that includes dynamite works, a secret army and knitted swimming costumes.
You can listen to the stories ‘rambling’ in the location where they were collected, or you can choose to experience the walk via the armchair mode in your own home - perhaps whilst you are planning a trip to Cornwall, or as a memory to share when you return home. Whichever way you play it you will encounter local legends, gossip and a good deal of laughter along the way.
