Hackney Hear

Audio Augmented Reality

Hackney Hear

A early pioneer of Audio AR, Hackney Hear was a multi-layered GPS locative audio app funded by the Arts Council of England.

 

Set in London Fields and Broadway Market in London’s East End, Hackney Hear collaged together interviews, local history, archive, newly commissioned fictional stories and music, poetry and sound art. Richly layered it created an immersive sonic adventures that peeled back the layers of history of a specific rapidly changing location.

 

Hackney Hear won a Prix Europa award for Radio Innovation in 2012.
