Grand Tour is a 250 km three week walk performed by artists of all disciplines. In 2019 Grand Tour goes from the Ebro River Delta to the city of Lleida. The journey starts on august 14th and ends on september 1rst, the day of the world soundwalk.
This day walkers will take a train back to the city of Barcelona. The distance between Lleida and Barcelona is 150 km and the train covers it in 4 hours. Thus, this train is the slowest train in Catalonia. We will experience the soundscape of this slow train and distribute the wagons among the participants. Each wagon-group will record some samples of scapes and create a moving sound map. We will also design a walking choreography in the train so that we can walk from one wagon to the other during the traject. Some people will also be invited to join in the different stations between Lleida and Barcelona so we will be more as we will approach our destiny.
Recordings, drawings and texts will be the materials for a further sound map.
Grand Tour is a project of the Contemporary Art Center Nau Côclea
