The rhythm of the streets
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.
Walking, isolation and togetherness
Social isolation, already prevalent for many, has been exacerbated during the pandemic. Author Sonia Overall argues that walking alone can increase togetherness, regardless of absences and physical distance.
