PAS – Parcours Audio Sensibles et Points d’ouïe, vers des territoires élargis

Durant des années, l’écriture et la pratique de PAS – Parcours Audio Sensibles ont été essentiellement liées, en ce qui me concerne, à des approches esthétiques et écologiques, notamment dans la construction de paysages sonores et de points d’ouïe partagés.

Grand Tour – An art walk of 200 km in Catalonia

    [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ty8xbp-Uv4[/embed]   There are several stages during the art walk. In each one an artist or group of artists will share something with the visitors: music, dance, visual arts, poetry… Every day people walk about 15 to 25 kilometers along with an artist or a group of artists who have prepared something for them. The path follows a topographical spiral down and around the region, crossing urban and rural areas, natural landscapes, and seaside or mountain trails. Both during the walk and at stops, the artists perform and make their artistic interventions—poetry, dance, installations, music. Day and night. Source: Grand Tour – Un proyecto de Nau Côclea
