Klaipeda Soundscape Diary 2010

„I have a large collection of sounds; I have these little tape recorders and I take one wherever I go in my
pocket, ...
(interview with Jonas Mekas at Anthology Film Archives, February 4, 2005 by Liutauras Psibilskis)

During my walks through the region of Klaipeda I wear a small digital sound recordery ready to record this
special moments/places, where things collide - mix and set up a unique atmosphere like a landmark. The
project is besides information for acoustic ecology also a personal sounddiary. You - the listener -
can participate and explore these spaces too.

Each city has its acoustic characteristics - each city has its international sound. It´s a mix that is created in
and through the architecture of the city. The infrastructure play´s the role of an conductor and we - inclusive
the things we created - and on the other side our natural environment are the musicians.


The KSD is a work in progress. It will be finished on the 15. April 2010.

(For full listening pleasure headphones at a moderate volume level are recommended!)
