A 4 km walking audio tour guide in Rotterdam featuring 6 highlights.
This guide is free.
Welcome to the soundwalk ‘Of steel and water: the city tunes itself’ by Lee Patterson.
The route you are about to walk has been especially chosen because of the sound recordings made along its’ way. These recordings have been used to create the compositions that correspond with each location. Many of the sounds originate within the materials around you along the walk, for example, the underground sewers beneath your feet, sounds from within the nearby river and docks, or the vibrations generated by passing traffic upon the Erasmus and other bridges. They represent a unique opportunity to hear hidden sound that exists within the everyday environment of this area. These vibrations are usually inaudible and have been recorded using contact microphones, hydrophones and small microphones placed inside local objects.
In addition, near field radio emissions from the metro station at Wilhelminaplein were recorded with pick-up microphones.
