MOVING SOUNDS FESTIVAL | ON-GOING EVENT
FROM AUSTRIA TO AMERICA : A DIGITAL SOUND WALK
THURSDAY, SEP 19 2013 - SATURDAY, SEP 21 2013
This project by Ruth Farrar, which was commissioned by the ACFNY for this year’s Moving Sounds Festival, will take place at the ACFNY Library, on the building’s 4th floor, for the duration of the festival. From Austria to America: A Digital Sound Walk moves beyond the traditional boundaries of a sound walk to digitally take a listener on a journey of personal memories that delve beneath the surface of picture perfect images of the United States. Using headphones, the listener can enter the worlds of Austrians who have moved to America. These personal journeys are mapped out through audio interviews accompanied by a postcard’s minimal visuals to explore universal themes of home sickness, tourist expectations versus the reality of living in a place, and the process of creating a new home away from one’s homeland.
The Sound Walk is available to visitors
September 19. from 3PM to 8PM
September 20. from 12PM to 5PM
September 21. from 10AM to 1PM
ABOUT THE SERIES
For the fifth consecutive year, the Austrian Cultural Forum New York is producing Moving Sounds, a festival dedicated to music, visual media and aesthetic dialogue that features emerging and pioneering artists who focus on electronically generated music, and those who are at the interface of classically instrumented and electronic music.
