Abstract

[re]locate revisits the tragic real-life story of the racist murder of Stephen Lawrence near a bus stop in southeast London in 1993. In its original form - a darkened space, approx. 5 x 8 metres in dimension - the six-speaker sound installation exploits the unique qualities of immersive or spatialised audio to place the audience at the centre of events. On entering the darkened installation space, members of the audience take on the role of ‘pedestrians’ or ‘passers-by’ and encounter a reconstruction of events from different perspectives.

The experimental audio mix, presented at the conference, is a binaural representation of the immersive multi-channel audio installation for listening with headphones.
