Sound:Site Festival

We will be presenting and launching this new version of Twitchr at Sound:Site Sonic Arts Festival, South Hill Park, tomorrow – Saturday 2nd October 2010

This will include a short walk around the Park with audio recording equipment – so we can make new uploads to the map on the day.
