MONS : SOUND ITINERARY CREATION SOUND DROP - AUDIOWALKS

An urban sound itinerary played through the headphones of an audio-guide device, usually found in Museums. The urban sound itinerary is being played via the headphones of a Museum-type audio guide – with uploaded sequences created by a dozen artists, from sounds recorded in the Goutte d’Or area, in Paris- a geographical map and specific pointers – signs and arrows- Sound Drop has been designed as an outdoor radio. It involves editing and hybridizing processes : through sound, it projects one location onto another, transforms the perception of spaces and introduces fiction into reality : the city is being haunted by the sonic ghost of another identity, another territory…

Within EUROPEAN SOUND DELTA, Sound Drop will become a series of itineraries across Europeans cities. They will keep the same soundtrack revealed on the occasion of the first itinerary in Mons, during the Citysonics festival. This (roughly) 1 hour composition (compiling a dozen tracks) will then migrate to other cities on the Rhine and Danube rivers. The traversed spaces will be highlighted : each itinerary will be documented as video and it will be possible to visualise the crossed spaces on the Internet.
