Paris (à) Dakar
 
Sound walk, 22’50” – 2013
Participatory sound walk (Mobile telephones, boom box and radio transmitter)
Realised in the district Sicap II Liberté in Dakar, during the residency at the art centre KërThiossane (SN).
 
 
“Paris (à) Dakar” invites people to download a mp3 or connect their mobile telephones to an ephemeral radio frequency, for listening via headphones to a composition based on steps previously recorded in Paris. The sound walk has to follow one instruction: walking through the streets at the rhythm of the steps recorded in Paris soundscapes. The experience proposes a time-space dimension for re-composing and transforming the present and the everyday contexts through sound.
