I had the pleasure of visiting Locus Sonus and the Mobile Audio Fest in Aix-en-Provence last week.
"Mobile Audio Fest is a 4 day event exploring the relationships between mobility and (new) forms of listening and sound-making. Conceived as a series of “rendezvous” in Aix-en-Provence and Marseille, Mobile Audio Fest presents 15 projects by international artists in which mobility plays a central part. The program includes performances, installations, apps, soundwalks, audiowalks, workshops and talks."
Here are a few of my quick tweets as I visited some of the art works:

About Locus Sonus:
"Locus Sonus audio in art, is a research group whose main aim is to explore the, ever evolving, relationship between sound, place and usage. In an Art/Science tradition our research involves experimentation with emerging audio technologies particularly those relating to sound transmission, mobilization or spatialisation. Maintained by the art schools of Aix en Provence and Bourges, Locus Sonus is concerned with practice driven research and transdisciplinary approaches to the arts of sound."
