Walk With Me at Felbrigg Hall

Visitor enjoying the Walk With Me soundscape experience

Following the success of Walk with Me at Felbrigg Hall at the Norfolk and Norwich Festival in 2016, the soundscape is now a permanent fixture, available as a downloadable app.

Wander through woods and fields creating your own cinematic experience. With the landscape as your screen, headphones provide a soundtrack of music, words and sound effects. As you move through the grounds, moods change, time flits from past to present and an intriguing narrative by novelist Megan Bradbury recollects the past of Felbrigg Hall and reframes the estate as a place of stories and wonder.

You can download the app for free on your own iPhone or iPad or a small number of iPads are available to borrow from our visitor reception.

Strijbos & Van Rijswijk’s walkscapes are present across the world, in locations including Paris, Istanbul, New York and Glasgow. Using GPS technology to superimpose site-specific compositions, natural sounds and narrative onto the surroundings, they invite audiences to choose their own path and tempo to create their own soundtrack.
