Over the past ten years, Soundwalk Collective has won international recognition for their work of abstracting and re-composing narrative sound pieces through fragments of reality, and by forging evocative journeys in sound that are exhibited in the form of sound installation and performance. This Anniversary Series will showcase selected works that have both defined and defied the soundscape genre. At noon on Saturdays in the month of January, Soundwalk Collective will showcase eight places on the planet, and their unique sounds. These programs were broadcast first in Nov., 2012 on Resonance FM in London.

Soundwalk Collective is an international art collective based in Berlin and New York City. Since 2000 they have been sonic nomads, embarking on never ending journeys from the desolate land of Bessarabia to the desert of Rub al Khali. By exploring and documenting the world around us through its sounds, the Collective abstracts and re-composes narrative sound pieces through fragments of reality to form distinct audible journeys.
