############################################################ It’s obvious, but let’s stress it again: There is no bird in a recording, there is only a some kind of information that can be used to reproduce a certain pattern of pressure waves in the air that a brain would accept as being the sound of this flying animals it learned to call birds.

As soon as the brain accepts the pressure-wave pattern as bird sound, it checks if the sound it perceived can be integrated into an environment.

situation #1:
I’m in a garden – there are birds – that’s normal – I’m reading a newspaper – no need to change or initiate activity – nothing happens – the I probably doesn’t even “hear” the bird.

situation #2:
I’m in a theater, there’s probably no birds – it’s part of the performance – I already know the scene plays in a garden – well…

let’s switch to the sound of a car:

situation #3:
I’m on a sound-walk – I hear the sound of a car – I’m on a street – is this car real or if only in the recording? anyway I’m on the sidewalk – what did the actor just say? where do I have to go next? … ############################################################ Sounddesigner Noid and director Julie Pfleiderer talk about their collaboration for the audiowalk and performance “Am Schönsten ist das was bereits verschwunden ist” at Festival Steirischer Herbst Graz Austria 2011.

WALK: Simon Loeffler

exploring the musicality of simple physical acts

TALK: 4:30pm Joanna Bailie

A sort of morphology of sound, giving non-musicians and non-sound experts a starting point for understanding the elements involved in sound (frequency, noise, harmonics) and how this applies to the sounds that they might be recording or using.

I’ll show a lot of examples using a sonogram programme which helps analyse and visualize sound material.
Maybe play a few excerpts of relevant works.
I might go on to look at elements of speech (what the sounds of speech are) in detail.

WALK & TALK: Carlotta Scioldo

Do I know how a gaze will follow the next?
How a step follows the next?
We walk in the context of previous journeys as we talk in the context of previous discussions
we had
in other places
perhaps
“the walker knows as he goes”…
Shall we walk?
The walk is part of a research that explores different formats of guiding and wayfinding within the environment, playing with different components.
In this context, where do we locate sound and how do we move around it? Where do I allow myself to move under covered destinations?
