The Parliament by Closed Forum: While we are unable to launch The Parliament today due to Covid19 we thought it would be a great time to mark this moment and share a little bit of our project with you.
The Parliament is set in 2030. You play the role of a Reporter tasked to explore Leeds City Centre and report back to a private company, commissioned by The Government. Mixing history and fiction, made as part mobile game and part interactive artwork, The Parliament takes you on a journey that will be different for every participant.
We have been working hard to complete The Parliament ready for whenever life returns to normal, a new normal or there is more clarity on how our ever-changing situation will look like over the coming year/years.
Today we are sharing the amazing soundtrack for the experience, produced by Sound Artist Jack The Robot. ( jacktherobot.com )
Featuring field recordings captured just days before the Uk Lockdown, each track represents a location in Leeds and mixes the sounds of the busy streets with a haunting soundscape.
