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. In this Walk Listen Café you join established researchers and artists in the field of sound, music and walking, going into a conversation about how walkers resonate with the city and how the city is sonorically composed by / of its walkers.
Speakers: Viv Corringham, Fabian Gutscher, Fani Konstantinidou, Jordan Lenchitz, Alessandro de Cecco, Maria Ristani and Andromachi Vrakatseli, moderated by Andrew Stuck
Speakers were asked to record a presentation and make it available to attendees, as a starting point for further discussion. Available presentations:
