The context: our Erasmus+ Project “The Soundscape we live in”

The aim of this soundwalk: a collective location scouting of the Vaise neighbourhood (Lyon) during a three focus points promenade.

We are eight people, including sound artists, students, District Council members, a person involved in the “Sentiers métropolitainS” project…

This first soundwalk is a naked ear listening, without any recording or listening device.

The listening focuses last between 15 and 20 minutes, quietly, in one sitting. Afterward, they’re commented during our walks between the listening points and at the end of the path.

It is 6:30 PM, the night has come, the weather is beautiful and warm for this time of the year.

Before starting, a little briefing : what is at stake, with the european soundscapes? Why did I choose a soundwalk? What is its place in the project?…
