A geo-located sound installation about connection

Open Call

We invite students of the University of Hull to take part in a new project about connection, by responding to the question:

‘What characteristics of a friend (past or present) have you really liked? Share a time, you experienced this characteristic’? We are thinking about the power one person can have to uplift, inspire, help without them even knowing (1 min)

By submitting your recording you agree that you are over 18 and you allow your audio to form part of the anonymous audio-based artwork Power of One.

Please submit audio contributions online via Speakpipe.

If you would rather submit your audio in an alternative way email whatiscollective@outlook.com, with the subject header ONE: Submission.​

Power of One is a geo-located audio walk that will take place on the University of Hull’s Cottingham Road campus that will be accompanied by a creatively generated soundscape that incorporates audio recordings (captured from participants) and sound design. 

The nature of the geo-location application triggers audio at specific, pre-determined GPS co-ordinates on the walk.  Access to the project for an audience is based around the use of audience’s own mobile devices, pre-installed with the necessary app and audio files, and head/ear phones.  This pilot will take place in Spring 2021.
