A sound walk that uses field recording techniques and environmental sounds to create a walking performance. Ambulation engages with the act of recording as an improvised performance in response to the soundscapes it is presented within.
The performer collects acoustic and electromagnetic signals from the immediate environment and transmits them to audience members who are listening in via an online stream. Using a specially made system the performer can process and manipulate the collected sounds and build an improvised composition with the sonic environment he moves through.
