2012 - ongoing
Sound Development City 2013 was an artistic expedition that started on September 23rd in Lisboa and ended on October 9th in Marseille. 13 selected artists working with sound, music, performance and in other cultural fields developed 9 projects, based on the expedition's theme „Dancing Partners“, while experiencing and reviving urban spaces.
The sound intervention text2field-recordings is based on field-recordings taken by workshop participants and the artist during the expedition, focusing on nature and technology. The recordings are gathered in so-called “Sound Containers”, and unveil the sound patterns and systems of the cities. The citizens of Lisboa and Marseille provide short texts describing “the sound of their city”. These texts are processed through self-written software into a composition based on the previously created “Sound Containers”.
In Lisboa and Marseille I asked the citizens of both cities to contribute text on how they perceive the sound of their city. After a field-recording workshop people from both cities and me recorded sounds within the city which was the soundmaterial for the performance. In Lisboa also the workshop-participants perfomed text to fieldrecordings live. Detailed informations on the project via Sound Development City 2013.
