Response sound Maps /Walks is part of the project radioCona: TRANS_LOCATIVE

The sound maps are created by nine selected (art/activist) works based on sound perception. The artists extracted the sound that was primary in their work, and set it on the map of the selected locations conditioned by the production of their work. The selected works share a critical perception of social and political events based on sound intervention into a public space.

The Response Sound Maps/Walks maps are based on the Radio Aporee application. There are several modes of perception available to the visitor: a) a physical experience of the walks / artistwalks following marked paths composed of artworks in Ljubljana, Zagreb, Belgrade, Sarajevo, Mostar and Durres; b) a virtual walk on the map available at the gallery and online; and c) a combination of a physical and virtual experience.

This exhibition project further pursues the creative endeavours of radioCona focused on sound and revisits possible relations to a concrete, physical space. The map formed investigates whether in situ works are able to establish a network of spatial connections that, by way of interactive sound maps, consolidate, complement or even transform the perception as well as the experience of a given space.

The selected locations on which the works extend are not neutral, they have been inscribed within the reactions to political and social transformations. What is the actual strength of a directed hearing experience? How does a sound experience affect the perception of space? A visitor of Response Sound Maps/Walks becomes a listener of the space that incorporates the reaction to what happens in the city.
