Sunday September 1st, 2019 was the Sound Walk Sunday 2019, the start of a month-long global festival of soundwalking events and performances, celebrating outdoor audio, geo-located, immersive performances, listening walks and soundwalks.
On September, 18th a Hush City Soundwalk directed by Dr. Antonella Radicchi – and co-organized by musicians and sound artists Emanuele Porcinai, Amedeo Cappelletti and Pablo Diserens – will be guided in the districts of Wedding & Mitte, Pankstraße area, to map & assess quiet areas with the free app Hush City.
People from any background are invited to take part in this excursion to map & evaluate the quiet areas, confront perceptual difference/similarities and, ultimately, contribute to each other’s perspective of the urban soundscape.
Hush City Soundwalks were initiated by Antonella Radicchi in 2017, in parallel to the release of the Hush City app, a free app for iOS and Android, which enables people to create an open access, digital map of quiet areas for the benefit of the city’s inhabitants.
