part42_Path of Awareness_Montelupo
From the 4th till the 12th of November I came to Firenze/Montelupo Fiorentino to do my kind of artistic research based on human auditory perception by at- tentive and concious listening during walking in urban space. I started with a walking and listening investigation over 4 days in Montelupo Fiorentino. These researches and observations led to de ne a route for my art work SchuhzuGehör_path of awareness_montelupo orentino, which is a soundwalk designed to emphasize the self-consciousness of the walker with regards to his relationship with space through walking.
A video of the path can be found on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/242063343
However, in Montelupo, it was a different procedure than compared to other paths of awareness. In a workshop (10.-12.11.) we made sonic site studies with binaural audio recordings, video and documentary pictures of views and positions on different spots found along the route of the path. We investigated the walkability and rhythm along with its architectural and atmospheric qualities, how the city and the river are embedded in the environment and about daily rhythms and dynamics in its social and economic interactions.

During my stay I was interviewed by Daniela Fantechi, which can be read here:
