Artic Sound Walk – Horatio Clare BBC Radio 3 Slow Radio – 3×15′ episodes – only days left to listen

Be the first to favourite this.

Freezing and Finding Episode 1: With a rich, varied and immersive listening experience, in the latest of his Slow Radio Sound Walks, as the winter draws and the snows threaten, Horatio Clare follows Greenland’s Arctic Circle Trail from the west coast of the country towards the vast ice-sheet. In a series of alien worlds, the scapes are changing all the time. The light, shapes and colours, the skies, waters and prospects are limitless.

Recorded in October 2019 when the tundra still has life, but the season changes, staying overnight in fishermen’s shacks overlooking fjords, Horatio Clare brings to life the harsh and scenic beauty of one of the classic walks of the world.

The rhythm of the streets

2021-07-08 18:00

Online

Walking lays the rhythm of the streets, archives the voice and the memory of the city. Our feet are an instrument, and they read the sonic composition of urban space. Our listening revitalizes social space. By walking we connect our body with the body of the city, as players and listeners of an urbanophonic orchestra - conversation about how walkers resonate with the city and how the city is sonorically composed by / of its walkers.
