Participation in the collective project Einander zuhoeren (listening to each other) in colaboration with escoitar.org and Fones. The project consists in a series of soundwalks downtown Athens with the use of locative media and a soundmap of the city. Curator: Geert Vermeire. You can download the walks on your (android) mobile phone and listen walking around Athens city centre. Information and instructions here. Download (qr) here.
My contribution to the project:
Around the market
Omonia Square – Athinas Street area – Monastiraki Square
People, senses, stories are at the heart of the market. Voices -in various languages- of people moving there daily are an integral element of the local soundscape. Apart from the usual vocal routines, people have shared memories, descriptions, everyday tactics, performances related to the area. The walk is based on the ephemeral music of the place -a meshwork of natural and mediated voices, street music, machinery, birds, weather conditions… There are moments to drift and others to raise questions about the area, migration, politics.
