Sound Wallk: Richard Hronský and Michal Herceg

We cordially invite you to the Sound Wallk accompanied and commented by artist and musician Richard Hronský and radio editor and publicist Michal Herceg. Routine movement through the streets of the city will develop into invisible (or unimaginable) levels thanks to sound and listening while wandering in the center of the Old Town.





I think that nowadays it is not in the habit to stop and pay attention to listening and observing the space around us. Maybe sometimes we hide from it because we have nothing else to do, or we simply don't see it. Presented by Richard Hronský

About an hour's walk from the Summer reading room U červeného raka to the Cathedral of St. Martin we will interrupt with several stops, which we wll devote to listening and reflecting on what we hear from the position of a sighted and a blind person.

For Mišo, sounds are not just background or noise. They help him navigate the world without sight. He will show you some of it. What is echolocation? Can you "hear" the wall? How does one stomp in the passage and how in the square? Come and see, you will hear.

Richard is fascinated by the perception of movement on various visible and invisible levels. For him, sound means visual, and vice versa, visual means sound. He is currently basing part of his creative practice on this perception within the framework of free audio and visual art.
