Soundwalk – immersive sound journeys

More about sounds. I found yet another great site which explores sounds. They produce cutting-edge audio guides, by mixing fiction and reality thus providing an exclusive and poetic discovery of the city. As they describe it, it is a Baudelairian stroll and cinematic experience.

Soundwalk is an international sound collective based in New York City, that was founded by Stephan Crasneanscki in the early 2000s. Over the past 10 years they have collected and re-interpreted sounds from all over the world to create immersive sound journeys.

Soundwalk produces walking guides of cities that offer the listener a narrative to follow in order to discover their surroundings in a new way. Soundwalk has produced guides for New York, Paris, Ibiza, Berlin, London, Varanasi, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong. Narrators representing their native cities and districts for the guides include, Gong Li, Paul Auster, Philippe Starck, Jazzy Jay and Afrika Bambaataa. Using native narrators is intended to direct listeners to more obscure attractions. Soundwalk city guides are designed for iPhone.             via Soundwalk – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
