Soundscapes

Soundscapes is a project that was developed at the Pinea-Linea de Costa Artist-in-Residence program in Rota, Spain in April 2019.

 

The procession through Rota’s unique sonic landscape, an expression of its urban, cultural,

and economic identity, expresses a sequence of site-specific sonic environments.

Soundscapes is a research project that investigates the experience of the city using sound and representations of sound as a medium for documenting movement through the urban landscape.

In addition to a participatory performance that invited the public on a silent walking tour of the city, a series of poems about the city, in the language of the city’s soundscapes were created to explore the relationship between sound and memory as a form of cognitive mapping.
