Cent mille oreilles: NY_Soundwalk_Broadway-Soho

Un après-midi nous avons marché dans les rues de Soho. Je ne étais pas trop vif sur les achats que les touristes font dans ce domaine et je ai commencé l'enregistrement, Broadway ci-dessous. Le trafic est remarquable mais évidemment ne était pas l'heure de pointe. Il ya aussi un bon nombre de piétons, mais certainement un samedi après-midi est occupé ... Parmi ceux qui ont traversé moi, il ya les touristes mais aussi les voisins en passant par la rue est jeune et il ya plus ... groupes, les célibataires, les colporteurs et acheteurs compulsifs chargés de sacs .... moteurs d'accélération, les bips stridents, le freinage, les changements de vitesse sont étroitement liés avec les voix dans un flux régulier de petites et grandes sons ... mais manque un niveau de saturation résultant excessive ou ennuyeux, au moins pour moi. A un moment, je me tiens au sommet d'un métro vent et quelques secondes plus tard Surje un hochet sous mes pieds ... mais se estompe rapidement ... et deviens grincements, des bips, les voix ... une autre approche de hochet et se éloigne. .. répétitions (dans l'autre sens, je pense ...) ...

Sound: 
eye-opener

Sound art aims to make people listen more attentively to their surroundings. On a soundwalk this happens in a very direct way: a particular route is followed while listening to a recorded sound composition through headphones. But blind people are already very active and attentive listeners. What, then, is the added value of a soundwalk for them?

In everyday life we mostly pick up sound as signal, and this is particularly true of blind people. In contrast to their sighted counterparts, they are after all dependent on sound as their principal source of information. In the forum discussion after the soundwalk, the blind participants spoke of their pleasure in the beauty of the sounds heard through the headphones. Walking through the streets had gained an added dimension for them. Their customary, targeted ‘signal listening’ was replaced by relaxed spatial listening.

Sighted participants on the soundwalk Down by the Riverside experienced a similar response. For once, listening took precedence over seeing. And other senses such as touch and smell were activated by the mindful listening.
On the Amstel bridge a former bridgemaster recalled through the headphones how he used to operate the bridge by hand. I heard the grating sound of the bridge opening and suddenly I became aware that I was tracing the letters on the NIEUWE AMSTELBRUG nameplate with my fingers, like a blind person. And not only that. For the sighted participants, the relaxed attitude of spatial listening also had an effect on their way of seeing. Their customary, fragmented snap-shot way of seeing, aimed at instantly recording information, was transformed into a dreamy registration of the surroundings as a whole, with new, fresh eyes.

Another aspect of the soundwalk with headphones is that the world we hear differs from the actual surroundings. The sounds through the headphones of the sound walker is a conscious, site-specific composition created by the sound artist, an intervention in the normal aural experience of a specific environment. The walker experiences this virtual world as unequal to the actual world he is walking through, which he sees and also hears through the half-open headphones. He must strive to connect these two opposing sources of information by drawing on his imagination, ideas and memories. The result is a new experiential environment, one’s own newly-created personal city.

This experience is in stark contrast with the regular use of mobile media in the city. Increasingly people walk through the city’s streets wearing earplugs or headphones, locked in their own sound bubble of downloaded MP3s or a radio station. They experience this self-chosen soundtrack as their real surroundings. It fits them like a reassuring glove and the sound does nothing to prompt them to re-evaluate their urban environment.

Posts about R. Murray Schafer written by Gillian Howell

Recently, someone told me about a book they had read that was a sound-tour (in words) through Paris in the time of La Boheme – gas lighting in the streets and so on. I wish could remember who told me about this book, as I can’t recall enough detail to track it down. But beyond that, the conversation got me thinking about soundworlds, and the way that soundworlds of children may be very different to those of adults.
