You can pick up a walkman from Ikons reception and take a circular walk taking in Brindleyplace, Broad Street and the ICC. The walk lasts about 15 minutes. Scanner has selected specific soundtracks mindful of their resonant associations in the cultural memory of different generations. Excerpts from The Pink Panther or Taxi Driver will certainly induce certain characteristics or impulses for certain ages. Soundtracks were chosen to enhance and colour the journey through the architecture of the city, colouring the imagination with a cinematic eye.
