Tourist

Binaural sound intervention

36 minutes

2021

Composed in collaboration with Will Heasman, Tourist is a headphone sound intervention created for the only public bus route on the Isle of Portland in Dorset. The immersive soundtrack uses original composition, site-responsive samples and field recordings to create a cinematic score. Responding to the physical geography of the dramatic Jurassic coastal terrain, the soundtrack works to heighten the rider’s physical and psychological experience, enveloping them into a fictional world as the bus makes a full circle around the rugged island. 

Commissioned by B-Side with support from First Bus Wessex.
