Play babel – Parlez vous St Gillois?, 2014
Sound walk realized by Anna Raimondo for the project “Parlez vous St Gillois?”, produced by Constant zwv (Brussels, BE)

“Play Babel” is a sonic immersion in St Gilles neighbourhood made of untranslatable words, a soup of false friends, a salad of accents coming from different cultural horizons. After having met and recorded some local residents about their relationships to languages, the artist proposes here an alternative way to explore the district through a sound walk, offering an experience which plays at the same time with the superposition of sonic memories of places and on the notion of estrangement.
