Audiotourism is travelling by means of sound. Natural as well as urban landscapes have for a long time predominantly a subject for visual culture – but how about using postcards, landscape painting or land art in music?
Bratislava is being called the capital of the heart of Europe. Howewer, it is somehow specific: as if the abrupt political and social ruptures of its history have each and every time interrupted and stirred up the well-worn tracks of memory.
In this recording, curious audiotourists will find tw overlapping maps: one made up of a collection of feelings, bits and pieces of memories, associations and sounds attached to bratislava; the other a topography of the local creative and constantly evolving experimental music scene. Both contribute – in their own way – to the creation of this remarkable town’s cultural memory.
