Download the free Tributaries app for iOS and Android
from Monday 10 August 2015
Tributaries is an immersive audio experience accessible via a new mobile app. It presents a location-sensitive score of original music merged with recorded voices, giving an insight into the daily reality of life, loss and love on Tyneside during the First World War.
Using hundreds of local voices, Tributaries gives life to forgotten historical material from 100 years ago, including diaries, letters, newspapers and logbooks.
Tributaries also invites you to add your own recordings, provoking reflections on the present day and your connection to ordinary lives in 1914-18.
Tributaries is a collaboration between Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums and Halsey Burgund
