Arnhem, Netherlands

xxxx_terrain is an invitation to visit various marked Listening Sites – to linger, explore, experiment, listen and engage with their audible properties and qualities. Within walking distance, four different landscapes come together: the urban, the cultural, the industrial, and the terrestrial. Each has its own sense of time and rhythm, its special material conditions, and different spaces of activity. All carry many layers of meaning that tell stories and sing songs. To discover and connect with them, one has to spend time there, walking around, revisiting the same spot, pausing, and listening. In this way, we can hear the information revealed and feel the emotional effects that the audible has to offer.
