A Soundwalk from the former town tavern to the former military barracks
Location: Island of Molat, Croatia
Monday 18th July at 6:29am
Distance 1.3km, duration 7:04 min (Audio below)
On 18th July 2016 Irena Pivka and Brane Zorman will dedicate their two short early morning sound walks to the #WLD2016 event focusing on Sounds Lost and Found.
We have used binaural in-ear microphones* to record sounds at two very different locations in two different states: one was in park Tivoli in Ljubljana, Slovenia while the other was on the island of Molat in Croatia. At both locations we walked between two formerly important social places, located away from the centre, in the park and in a garden.
All objects (starting and ending points of both soundwalks) have been officially closed for a number of years and the facilities have declined. All of them have been closed due to recent historical, political and economical changes. Following the years of closure they have been attempts to revive these locations but it seems that the social interests have shifted in a different direction.
By connecting two locations in two different towns we highlighted the broken paths and connected the locations from our not so distant memories.
*For listening SoundCloud track I recommend using headphones.
