GEOGRAPHIES OF SOUND

Art Alteration

Sound may vary while walking in different environments. It depends on what is around you and what you are doing. When someone listens to a sound they can easily tell what is going on through that sound.

For instance, in this Soundwalk the shift clearly noticed from a slow quiet base into a very noisy one by the alteration of environment.

I was motivated by the responsibility of telling the truth about one of art aspects, walking. We are driven to walk both consciously and unconsciously which arouse by feelings that comes from inside. Therefore, I was really concerned about how to approach the reflection of my Soundwalk, revealing how things could function without the intervention of something/someone. By doing so, we must ask ourselves could these things have a different voice if we don’t present/interact within their environment? In his work Careri says “The act of crossing spaces stems from the natural necessity to move out o find the food and information required for survival. But once these basic needs have been satisfied, walking takes on a symbolic form that has enabled man to dwell in the word’
