Sound Development City 2013 | Selection N°3

03.10.2013 17:19 Sound Development City

While most artists already had left Lisbon, making their way to Marseille, François Tariq Sardi stayed a little longer, meeting architects, urban planners and musicians to take him across the city. On 30 September, he published the first part of his project «The Dream Committee» – an ongoing sound investigation process of an urban landscape which focuses on field-recording of soundscapes and open-mic conversations with local participants.

As part of his project, Sardi did several stereophonic environmental recordings earlier in Lisbon – as in the sound piece above, where he recorded the sea meeting the city.

The fifth Sound Development City Radio Transmission featured Lucas Norer, an Austria based sound artist and curator. In his «The Lisbon Route Project» he traces the accoustic paths of one of World War II’s main escape routes, on which thousands of people fled to Lisbon from the Nazi-terror via Marseille, hoping for a passage over the Atlantic.

The Sound Development City crew will come together again in Marseille on 5th October. Stay tuned to the expedition’s progress on the logbook website and on Facebook.
