Weiße Elster – binaural soundwalk

Walking piece details


To be listened to with headphones.

This is a binaural sound walk that I created during my riversssounds residency in March 2021. It portrays the path from a noisy bridge with lots of traffic into calmer spheres in the park. It is a trip exploring the different spaces that the river passes in the city, a trip transcending reality and surfaces, triggering imagination.
