About

The website walk · listen · create (WLC) is the home of walking artists and artist walkers, as well as Sound Walk September.

walk · listen · create operates on a plain that is bounded by sound, or audio, place, or location, and technology. Technology is not just mobile phones or computers, it’s also pen & paper, rocks, and anything that can be used as a tool.

We have a particular weak spot for sound walks, hence our yearly festival Sound Walk September. Curious as to what is a sound walk?

WLC was officially founded in 2021 as an NGO in Belgium, but we came together in 2019, around the implementation of the first Sound Walk September, itself a consequence of Sound Walk Sunday 2017.

Home of walking artists

We catalogue the publications of artists who walk, and provide a place for walking artists to share their work, thoughts, pieces and events. walk · listen · create is maintained by Babak Fakhamzadeh, Geert Vermeire and Andrew Stuck.

Andrew Stuck conceived the idea of Sound Walk September, and he administers its finances. A podcaster since 2008, he has met and interviewed scores of walking artists and sound walk creatives.

Babak Fakhamzadeh supervises the online digital SWS platform that is hosted on the walk · listen · create website. Babak is a locative media creative and app builder in his own right and brings analytical strengths to SWS.

Geert Vermeire is the key connector, already the founder and convenor of Made of Walking, a globally networked community of more than a thousand four hundred walking artists and performers, he has been making locative media, and sound walks in particular for nearly two decades.
