By Miss Milivolt and Asnate Bockis
A workshop and walk about sound marks in the city. Participants will get acquainted with sonic anchor points in their immediate environment and sirens in particular. The aim of this workshop is to stimulate auditory spatial awareness and will teach participants how to recognize sonic anchor points and their importance in your daily soundscape. We will start the day with a short introduction about sirens, sound marks, modes of listening and deep listening. After some short exercises, the group will have a listening walk around the Strijp-S area, exploring sonic anchor points on the route. At the Philips Stadium we will collectively listen to the monthly test of the siren and celebrate the siren with a snack and drink typical for the city of Eindhoven.
Tickets: €12,50 (regular) & €10,00 (student)
This workshop is part of Miss Milivolt’s project Collective Signal (2017 – ongoing) around the planned decommissioning of the national warning system (air raid siren) in 2020. Miss Milivolt is in the process of creating a special composition as a swan song for the system. The piece is to be performed simultaneously through all 4300 sirens of the Netherlands. Potentially, this will also be the largest sound installation of the country; in any case it is the biggest instrument available.
