Binaudios is a device that enables the user to ‘listen’ to the sounds of the city, seen out of the Sage Gateshead windows.    Watch the video…

Taking tourist binoculars as inspiration, the Binaudios can be pointed at over 40 different locations.

Thinking Digital Arts paired artist Dominic Wilcox and creative technologist James Rutherford, they collaborate together on a new commission responding to the Thinking Digital Conference’s context in the music performance centre, Sage Gateshead, located in the cultural quayside quarter of NewcastleGateshead.

Turn the giant listening cones toward the football stadium to hear the crowd chanting or to the Tyne Bridge to hear King George V’s speech when he opened the bridge in 1928. Point it toward the park to listen to sounds such as skateboarders and local tennis players.
