Basel findet Stadt

A binaural Portrait of Basel

For the touring exhibition 'Basel findet Stadt‘ Idee und Klang has created a sonic portrait of the city of Basel. The exhibition examines the phenomenon of urban concentration in regard to our hometown. Visitors are invited to learn about the repercussions of said development and, if nothing else, its benefits.
Equipped with a couple of biannual microphones we set out to listen to the city. We recorded its people, music, silence, industry and its cacophony. By interweaving all of those sounds, we created a binaural journey through the city of Basel.

Exhibition Period: March 23 - August 28, 2015
