Cona and walk · listen · create present Sound Walk City · prelude, a festival of sound walks, performances and sound works, coinciding with Sound Walk September 2021.

Sound artist Anne Cecilie Lie invites to a discussion around sound walking in the Anthropocene and raises questions about global technology and ecology, how it affects art practices by working with locative technologies and smartphones; the importance of other/non-human perspectives and senses of scale; and avoiding over-aestheticizing a “serene nature” as opposed to the chaotic/dark/grey nature of ecology where humans are as much a part of as more-than-human.

Anne Cecilie Lie is an artist and scenographer based in Oslo, Norway. Through her work, Lie examines how to create in the Anthropocene, with its related philosophical and ethical questions and possible futures. She points out blind spots in social and built structures and proposes alternatives to the human-exceptional. Central to their work are site-specificity and cross-pollination, inspired by Donna Haraway’s theories on ‘tentacular thinking’, which include feminist, post-colonial, scientific and fabulating approaches to collaboration between humans and non-humans.
The last 3 years, she has been working extensively with sound walks, including geo-locative ones. For CONA Steklenik, in the run up to Sound Walk City prelude in Ljubljana and Sound Walk September 2021, Lie has made an 8-channel sound piece “dissolutions II” inspired by a geo-locative sound walk that meanders through Oslo, made for nyMusikk’s concert series Periferien. This walk follows the city’s mesh of underground sewer systems and contaminated ground. It reflects on proximity between bodies through water.

Walking in the Anthropocene – Planetary Walking

Walking arts today became a response to the deep environmental global crisis we are facing today. Walking is one of the keys to contextualize and deepen our understanding and relation with the planet place we live on. It is more and more clear that the future will be ecological or there will not be a future for our species. Walking our planet is the opportunity to explore this question.

Remote walking – walking with prompts

2021-07-06 18:00

Online

The pandemic challenged walking artists to engage with new forms and new media for their practice. Group walking was translated into online walking, allowing people around the globe to walk together. Prompts or "walking scores" facilitated pandemic walkers to explore within the limits of their walking spaces, often in surprising and new ways, individually or with other remote walkers. Online technologies permitted to listen into remote spaces, beyond physical reach in the pandemic.
