The Route has a length of 1.8ml and public access at any place from 8am - 7pm each day a week. If you don’t attend one of the guided performances, I would higly recommend to do the path at least twice, once to check out the route and once to listen to it. traffic light

SchuhzuGehör_path of awareness explores an individual‘s personal experience of space through walking, particularly the interplay between sound event (footsteps) and surrounding architecture. Using the ACFNY as a starting point, a route will be marked: a „path of awareness“ offering a wide variety of opportunities to investigate the act of walking itself, characteristics of footwear and the walkability of urban space along with its architectural and atmospheric qualities.

Sc h u h z u G e h ö r path of awareness_midtown ny developed for the moving sounds festival 2015, acfny

The main requirements are a moderate walking tempo, a uniformity of movement, and a willingness to open up our auditory perception as much as possible. Let us confront this act of intentional listening amidst our own gait. This is how we can sense clear spatial thresholds - that is, transitions from one auditory space to another - and perceive minute spatial shifts. The shoes we wear along this way become soloists in space, instruments that enter into a dialog within the environment, provide us with spatial orientation, and locate us in space. There will be guided walking performances by katrinem, as well as the possibility to explore the path on one’s own. For this, visitors are encouraged to put on their most “sounding” shoes! https://vimeo.com/138623589 www.katrinem.de
