[murmur] is an archival audio project that has collected stories set in specific locations throughout Vancouver’s Chinatown. At each of these locations, a [murmur] sign marks the availability of a story with a telephone number and location code. By using a mobile phone, people can listen to the story of that place while engaging in the full physical experience of being there. Some stories suggest that the listener walk around, following a certain path through a place, while others allow a person to wander with both their feet and their gaze. Stories will be available in both English and Chinese.
Other cities include Montreal, Toronto, Kenora and Sudbury. Click the picture to head to the site!
