SOUNDLAPSE is an immersive audio tour through the heart of Queen St, St Marys in western Sydney.
Using an interplay of archival sounds, recorded interview snippets, narrations and local music, SOUNDLAPSE celebrates the diverse and shared stories of the St Mary’s community. Its reinterpreted stories and soundscapes allow audiences to embark on their own journey of rediscovery of familiar surrounds – where everyday scenes on Queen St start to slowly take on new meanings.
