Some years ago Kristine Samson und Sanne Krogh Grogh proposed the Audio Paper bringing together audio, performance and text in a new and hybrid format. This concept was extended into a new form of audio walk, during the Walking Arts Encounters / Conference in Prespa. It allows to listen to a text while walking and interacting with the environment, wherever you are, as a walker and listener. 

Rooted in an affective and elaborating the understanding of language this new form challenges writers, thinkers and artists to write texts for on the move, as a new combined discipline of walking art and writing. Eight of these audio works, inspired by the prompt “Walking as a Question” made for the Prespa Encounters are selected tonight and again available during Sound Walk September 2021 and at the International Analogio Festival in Athens.

In the run up to this event, a number of writers of these audio papers are invited, along with creators of sound walks for Walking as a Question, will share their thoughts and experiences about their works and this innovative practice of walking, writing and listening. Moderated by Geert Vermeire and Yannis Ziogas. Speakers: Maria Sideri (Greece), Pavel Niakhayeu (Belarus), Maria Ristani (Greece), The Carder’s assembly (Italy) and Simon Piasecki (UK)
