Walk Sounds


These audio clips are of people taking walks in locations around the world.  It is intended that the listener stream the clips through their smartphones as they take their own walk, and hopefully the disjuncture between what they are seeing, smelling, feeling, and what they are hearing will create a surreal and thought-provoking headspace. This portal to another place should make the listener even more present, as the sounds of things happening elsewhere will draw a natural comparison to their own surroundings. The goal is to create feelings of both distinction and consistency; comparing the listener's current location with a city thousands of miles away should make the participant feel grateful for the space they occupy, while creating a bridge of commonality between the two locations.
