The Rhythm of a Stride (Roas) is a continuously evolving project that follows a personal interest of mine to physically explore and sense urban spaces: to walk, listen, observe, and record as ways to understand places, and their potential transformation.
The project exists in three distinct modes:
- A personal and physical exploration of places through their multimodal documentation;
- The translation of these materials into a digital web-based experience developed as website adaptable to the different digital surfaces—desktop, tablets, smartphone;
- The transformation of the digital platform into a collaborative live concert scenario. In the latter, each guest musician will appropriate and transform the captured materials live and collaboratively with myself, either through sampling, sound manipulation, re-composing, etc.
For the concert at SPARC Sonic Sonic, Sam Andreae and I re-interpreted RoaS’s essay 001 through a live foley performance, including projected images of the recorded locations and excerpts of the text.
