Walking piece details

CANARIAS DC SOUNDWALK explores the sonic ecologies of the Canary Islands, a volcanic archipelago in the North Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Northwest Africa, within the geographic region known as Macaronesia.

The project presents an itinerary with seven geolocated compositions for headphone listening across selected locations in Washington DC. Each composition is created with environmental sound materials from each of the islands: El Hierro, La Gomera, La Palma, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, and Lanzarote.

Through different creative listening strategies and technologies, the fieldwork focuses on what usually remains hidden or unnoticed, on the limits and thresholds of perception and attention.

The project investigates the vitality and creativity of more-than-human agencies and realities, aiming to promote less anthropocentric ways of listening and thinking. Non-human species, materials, energies, spaces, air, water, weather, landscape formations, and sounds themselves, understood as phenomenal entities rather than secondary qualities. This sound walk encourages intimate and situated experiences embracing the affective powers of listening.
