Tuned City Brussels 2013 - bx in action

fmwalks/bx was the title of a series of sonic interventions in the city of Brussels, during the Tuned City festival. It was also a proof of concept, of how the system can be applied to places, what forms and formats would be possible and challenging. It turned out to be useful to have a wireless microfone available. People picked up the wireless for browsing around, into the nearby area, so I could mix the soundscape around the bx with the details and findings of their walking performance, along with other intersections with the radio aporee ::: maps etc. All walks and interventions were live broadcasted on the radio aporee ::: stream and occasionally into the FM space. By using a sort of virtual recorder on aporee, i could record and archive some of these sessions by simply touching a button on my mobile phone. Listen to some of the sonic traces on
