Tempo Rubato – Walk with me

Periferico Festival, Modena, Italy
21 t/m 22 October 2023

Exploring the relationship between sound and space, Strijbos & Van Rijswijk have devised a new site-specific performance, Tempo rubato – Walk with me, a sound project in the form of an app that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your smartphone. In the walkscape, natural, musical and vocal sounds are mixed and overlapped with those of the surrounding environment and processed in real time. Each spectator, walking with their mobile phone and headphones along a route that begins at the Villaggio Artigiano and ends at Aldo Rossi’s Monumental Cemetery, follows the directions of the app and builds a personal sound story, freely choosing their own ending.

Our team includes dramaturg Rita Hoofwijk, soprano Laura Giavon and libretto writer Giacomo Pedini, who are collaborating with us to create a unique version of Walk With Me for this festival in Modena.
