Public Space With A Roof

Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec

A composer and sound artist from Slovenia. He spoke about transforming the perception of reality by means of sound intervention. The intervention took place in Amsterdam in 2004. It was organized and supported by Public Space With A Roof. RS (REALITY SOUNDTRACK) is a sound intervention in public spaces such as post offices, passages, and shopping malls. Sound carriers are people equipped with small radio receivers – around 25 people, each one having a radio receiver. All these radio receivers transmit the same electronic composition, which is transmitted from a (mobile) pirate radio station, or from an existing radio station. All the carriers walk together through parts of the city following a given score of movement. The audible result of the action is a moving cloud of sound, which is traveling through the city.
