Let’s Get Lost is an immersive, sonic map of an inner city wilderness. Bring your headphones and lose yourself in the lost voices and forgotten layers hidden in the woodland, all waiting to be heard.
The app triggers stories using GPS, letting you walk in and out of the audio as you wander. There is no set route, no wrong or right way to go. Simply press go, pop your phone in your pocket and leave it there.
The last of London’s magnificent seven cemeteries, Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park is a magical place and the largest urban woodland in London. These recordings are a mixture of interviews, field recordings and archival recordings from the British Library and have been made to listen to whilst wandering the cemetery park’s winding paths, revealing more than you can see.
See if you can hear the invisible chapel, meet Rabbit who catches bats and Christopher who got lost at sea. Charlie Brown had a pub full of monkeys and the largest funeral the East End had ever seen. Hear tales of surviving doodlebugs and playing with shrapnel, and a circle of horses who snuffle in your ears. These are just some of the 28 intimate, audio portraits waiting for you in the park.
We would quite happily live in the cemetery park but feel free to come for twenty minutes or lose yourself for a couple of hours. You can always come back, take a different path and discover something new. Stories can last from 20 seconds to 10 minutes, there is plenty to hear.
Find them or let them find you. There are many ways to get lost. Leave the door open to the unexpected
