Canal Walk Naas
Naas Local History Group (NLHG)
The Harbour, Naas, Co. Kildare
22 August, 7pm - 9pm
This beautiful soundscape was created in 2017 by artist Camilla Fanning under the Waterways Ireland Heritage Plan 2016 - 2020.
The audio includes contributions from random passers-by on the Grand Canal in Dublin, arranged interviews, archival audio recordings and onsite field recordings. These are blended together to create a soundscape to be listened to by walkers along the canal using their own smart phones and headphones to listen to it, either streamed or downloaded from a podcast. As you walk you hear the words, thoughts and stories from a variety of voices from the present and the past.
