Sound Walk September 2020
From the 1st to the 30th of September
Sound Walk September is a global community event, celebrating outdoor audio, geo-located, immersive performances, sound walks and audio-enhanced walking pieces. (Sound) Artists are asked to submit new work created in 2020, and/or to host events during September. You can find the open call here.
A sound walk, or walking piece, is any walk that focuses on listening to the environment, with, or without, use of technology, or adds to the experience through the use of sound or voice. This can include a scripted or choreographed score or work that has additional audio elements.
Sound Walk September 2019 saw the event successfully shift from a day to a whole month, extending the event to over 40 countries in 5 continents. The next edition of Sound Walk September will start on Tuesday September 1, 2020 and will run until Wednesday September 30, 2020. The organisation calls on the creation of sound walks and walking pieces and invites all interested in exploring the impact and possibilities of sound walking to submit existing and/or new works.
Sound Walk September is coordinated by walk · listen · create, organized by the Museum of Walking and Made of Walking, backed by a global advisory board of prominent experts and by institutional and academic partners worldwide. More info click here.
