Exploring Vienna through sound stories and cinematic experience. In an explorative city walk, we visit one of Vienna’s „forgotten” quarters – the 11th district, Simmering. In order to get familiar with its distinct acoustic and synaesthetic environment, we approach its neighborhoods through different formats of exploration on location: experimental mapping techniques, a sound walk, as well as a subsequent round of discussion.
The focus on the everyday sounds of the neighborhoods of Simmering and their interaction allows us to trace the place with its hidden features and relationships. Having collected site-specific live impressions, we move on to a Viennese Kaffeehaus, where in a short lecture we will introduce the work and approaches of artists Janet Cardiff and George Miller before we close the afternoon with a discussion about the heard and seen adventure. Within the tour we will also visit Vienna’s Central Cemetary (Wiener Zentralfriedhof).
