Dates: Wednesdays 3rd - 24th Feb


A series of durational field recordings focused on environmental listening taken in the Limpopo province of South Africa in 2017. All sessions have been presented in binaural, creating an immersive, 360° listening space.


This series of listening sessions provides immersive spatial listening and a sense of escapism at a time where travel is limited. Listen to the unique sounds of the South African soundscapes that we would normally have very little access to and may never be able to experience in the same way again.

              Note – headphone listening is essential to get the full spatial image.
