Short papers / ‘Taman Tugu: Interference/Resistance’ – addressing urban rewilding with a musical augmented reality experience
- Abstract: ‘Taman Tugu: Interference/Resistance’ is an immersive, interactive musical work that has been mapped onto the pathways of the Taman Tugu jungle park in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Taman Tugu is an unusual place – a large rewilded space teeming with wildlife in the centre of a modern metropolis. ‘Taman Tugu: Interference/Resistance’ uses Audio Augmented Reality and placed sound to raise questions about the importance of urban green spaces in general and rewilded urban spaces in particular. This paper explains how the work asks these questions of its audience through the mapping of electronic sound over the unique geography of Taman Tugu.
