5000 miles – ITHACA
Date: Thursday 28 – Sunday 31 October
Location: St. Peter at Gowts Church
Over the past 18 months we’ve had a lot of time at home. Now, thanks to artist collective ITHACA, we can travel the world without ever leaving Lincoln.
5000 miles is an immersive 360-degree audio experience. It will transport you to another place through the evocative sounds of another culture. Listen as locations change, conversations swirl and busy streets envelop you. This atmospheric installation uses spatial audio technology and ambisonic 3D recording to take you on a trip across the globe.
As part of the Digital Democracies commissioning programme, ITHACA are bringing a brand new version of 5000 miles to Frequency 2021, premiering a new lightscape to complement the immersive audio installation, perfect to enjoy after dark.

ITHACA is a collective of light artists, sound designers, composers, editors and experimenters. They combine art, music and technology to create inventive new experiences with sound and light. Earlier this year Ithaca Studio’s award-winning work spectacularly lit up the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury for Coldplay.
