Newport Archives is an audio walk created by Tamara Saulwick for The Substation, which contemplates the connections between time, place and memory.
Created from interviews with local residents and a range of field recordings which have been processed, cut up, and rearranged. Explore Newport as you listen to pre-recorded sounds that intermingle with the here-and-now. Quiet streets are layered with recollections both strange and familiar and unassuming doorways are suddenly imbued with the mystery of what may lie beyond. Memory and imagination merge, fact blurs with fiction, and time and place are uncannily reconfigured in this immersive sound experience.
