"Workshop by: Matteo Marangoni"
City Sondols is an ongoing series of public interventions presented by iii that explores architecture and public space, and employs performative practices and mobile audio devices to induce perceptual shifts within the built environment. Performers, equipped with self-made, mobile musical instruments, lead an audience on a walk through the city while probing the surrounding space with sound. Aural impressions of sites are conveyed by using echolocation techniques and feedback processes. Combining aesthetic contemplation, physical engagement and urban guerrilla tactics, the walk proposes a form of active perception that temporarily modifies the surrounding environment.
