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.
