WELCOME TO SOUNDPATHS
Soundpaths is a brand new phone app which allows you to experience Moston & Harpurhey in a totally different way - through music and sound.
The finished app will be free to download and use. It will help to boost mental and physical wellbeing by taking the user outside to follow a 'sonic' journey using headphones through the parks and streets of Moston and Harpurhey. As you move it will play specially composed music that changes to match your location and lift your mood.
Designed for runners or walkers, the Soundpaths app will reflect and celebrate the diverse urban and natural areas and communities in and around the area.
We need your help to create content for the app over the coming weeks. You can do this by going outside and recording sounds and your spoken reflections as you explore the route through the parks and streets of Moston.
Explore this website for everything you need to know including online and downloadable maps, directions and how-to guides.
Soundpaths is part of MINDSCAPES - a project that explores the impact that our environment has on our mental wellbeing. Working with SICK! Festival and supported by Dutch Culture and The Kingdom of The Netherlands, Manchester music charity Brighter Sound have commissioned Dutch composer Yoni Collier to compose the music and bring together the recorded sounds and voices that you send in. The app will be launched in Moston and Harpurhey in the Spring of 2021.
