POCKET SOUNDS FOR ROUTINE, by THEA MARTIN
Pocket Sounds for Routine invites listeners to explore what happens when we step out of our routines to listen to the sonic environment, embracing the act of walking as a time for reflection, identity formation and discovery. Pocket Sounds for Routine was first realised in a text score workshop in public space on Kaurna land, Adelaide, in 2021.
