Memodrom sound walk is a memory hole. Here and there, zigzagging across bridges, you will stitch the city back together again by entering into forgotten memories. You will walk through a memory spiral, in which the city is a labyrinth and the sounds the triggers, for which forgetting is the starting point. Dysfunctional thoughts with escapes into sound situations, take us away from the productive logic of the city. It establishes a parallel experience of the city, in which the public infrastructure is not the carrier of the functions in the space, but a backdrop for the audio space. Instead of immersion, we create emersion. Memodrom respects the right to forget.

Augenmas [Dare Pejić] is a non-professional author, writer and producer. His first original work, “Action+drama” radio play, was selected as the best radio play at Radio Študent. With occasional forays into sound experiments (as a member of the Theremidi Orchestra) and a short career as a music selector, he has remained faithful to the medium of text in various genres. His interest for sound walks stems from media archeology.

beepblip [Ida Hiršenfelder] is a sound artist and archivist. She makes immersive bleepy psychogeographical soundscapes with analogue electronics, DIY and modular synths, field recordings and computer manipulations. She is interested in bioacoustics, experimental music and sound spatialisation. She was a member of the Theremidi Orchestra (2011–2015) and is currently a member of the Jata C group for bioacoustics and sound ecologies (2018–). She completed her Master of Sonology studies at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague (2023). From 2021 she has been developing three series: “Empathic Atmospheres” ambisonic and multichannel compositions, sound installations of inaudible sounds and “Translating Critters” sound walks.
