Soundscape Composition: wewalktogether

wewalktogether (29:00) (sound with descriptive title cards) This piece by Rui Chaves was presented during the 2010 Sonorities Festival at the Sonic Arts Research Centre at the Belfast Platform for the Arts gallery in Belfast.

wewalktogether was a mobile broadcast piece for 3 performers in three different cities: Graz, Hamburg, Belfast. They were symbolically united by a score with a series of notes and timed instructions and a multichannel system that allowed for simultaneously listening of each stream. Each performer explored different soundscapes, but also specific situations that are enhanced through on the spot engaging with urban space.

The piece aimed at providing the audience new time-space relationships based on the layering of the three sites, the gallery and the actions of the performers.
