Walk With Me
Palimpsest is an immersive sounding trip in the city. The main principle consists in an alternative perception of soundscape in real-time. With a GPS and headphone system, the visitor has the possibility to walk through the city center and to «discover» a different sounding reality linked with the places he is moving around.
The main concept of the project is based on the idea of a "sound palimpsest" : with this system, the visitor can hear some sounds which are part of the history of the city but which are not there anymore, or some metaphorical sounds that the artists were specifically creating. This project will propose a very specific and astonishing experience of walking towards Wroclaw. With a simple iPad including a special application (GPS and 3 dimensional sound), the visitors will be able to discover Wroclaw in a complete new "sounding" reality. The visitor will have a special map of the city center, showing the different sound spots they will be able to reach, creating their own and very special visit. The central point of this installation will be installed in National Forum of Music entrance.
Upon an idea by Pierre Jodlowski based on the “walk with me” project by Jeroen Strijbos & Rob van Rijswijk.

At the core of this work is the connection between audience, sound and music, and the market square located in the old center of Groede, located in West Zeeland Flanders.
A Landscape That Is Us
We are very honored to be featured again at this wonderful festival with our new project 'A Landscape that is Us'. A new immersive experience in which we combine several techniques we developed for our deep practice in creative placemaking investigating and experimenting with sound, space and public engagement.
Signal at Dusk
For the Norfolk and Norwich Festival we have composed a new live performance version of our landscape opera Signal. Beginning at dusk our 4 sopranos lead the audience along the shoreline bidding farewell to the sun on the horizon and signalling the arrival of the night.
Great Yarmouth beach will be transformed with sound. S&VR’s bespoke digital technology and twenty long throw speakers create a unique audio experience enabling visitors to the installation to experience the vast seascape afresh and in their own way.
