After Phonorama in the Papegaaiwijk in Ghent earlier, we now move to Bruges! As part of the AMOK festival, KAAP and De Stadsrepubliek wonder how people listen to life in the neighborhood around the Sint-Jakobsstraat and in the city of Bruges.
How do you listen to your neighbourhood?
Everyone who lives, works, lives and moves around in De Stadsrepubliek can join us on a "sound hunt". We map out typical and less typical neighbourhood sounds and examine how sound can be used to intervene in society in an artistic way.
The course and result of the trajectory is not fixed in advance, but depends on the input of local residents and everyone who wants to open up their ears in the neighbourhood. During the first edition of AMOK, we will start our sound hunt with a soundwalk or 'sound walk'.
We let you discover the neighborhood in a surprising way. With headphones on your ears and a recorder in your hands, you are ready to go. Let yourself be guided by what you hear and be surprised by the poetry of the sounds that surround us. Suddenly you listen to the city in more detail and you notice how city dwellers are also living together in an auditory way.
After this 'sound walk' you may become one of the Phonorama captains. Or do you get an 'egg-phone' on loan, a recording device in the shape of a wooden egg, to go on a sound hunt yourself.
- Phonorama Bruges is a long-term project that the local residents can help shape.
