The Electromagnetic Fountain

Electric walks

HC Gilje sent me a link to an ongoing project called Electric Walks (started 2003), by Berlin-based sound artist Christina Kubisch. Using sniffer headphones (that pick up electromagnetic waves and converts them into sound) she maps out hot spots in cities that are either very strong or interesting to listen to, and then loans the headphones out to the public. For an interview for Cabinet no. 21, she has provided 30 sound samples that she’s gathered while walking through various cities. You can listen to them here:
