Intermission, an audio portrait of place en Lisboa
A BROADCAST & LIVE WEB STREAM RADIO EVENT, 20-22 SEPTEMBER
INTERMISSION: AN AUDIO PORTRAIT OF PLACE – MAPPING THE SPACE BETWEEN A AND B
A collaboration between Jennie Savage and Echoes
To actively use a map is to make connections and perceptually join people, places and ideas together.
‘Mapping’ is an attempt to represent multiplicity. To give form to concepts, ideas, journey’s, even time.
An audio map is the playing out of sounds, ideas, field recordings, footage and imaginings from geography this
creates a new topography- a new map. A map that connects sounds to place and then forges connections
between places. This process is empowering. It connects people and ideas; situations that seemed singular
The broadcast has been organised into sections:
‘Territories’ Individual, community, locality, corporate, global, bought into conversation.
‘Convergence’ The intermeshing of birdsong, a human voice, a car, a factory, a glitch, a shopping mall, an
airport a train station, their convergence as audio portrait of place and human experience.
‘Psycho geography’, Time emerges through place.
‘Reflexivity’ Thinking about the idea of the field recording, the meaning of a walk or journey.
‘Dis orienteering’ The field recording as starting point for abstraction or manipulation.
–Broadcast by stress.fm between 20 and 22 of September. Check the radio program here
