Audio Blackspots unveils the disturbing soundscapes concealed amidst Reading’s network of waterways. Revealing sounds normally submerged, entombed within objects or existing beyond the reach of our senses, each stop on the tour draws attention to an audio blackspot, a site of disquieting sonic collisions. Created by local sound artist Richard Bentley for Reading-on-Thames Festival, this audio tour draws you towards the centre of town, prompting you to stop and explore unfamiliar soundscapes and fish for buried sonic treasures.
