A search for memories of sounds

The Belgium sound artist Stijn Demeulenaere and SNYK are in the middle of building a new installation called Soundtracks, and they need your help to finish it.

The idea behind Soundtracks is to create an archive of memories of sounds. Soundtracks wants to research what kind of sounds are memorized and how they are memorized. Can we replay those sounds in our heads, or do we only remember the event of the situation; the contour of the sound?

This is the reason why SNYK asks for your help. They ask you to spend some time rediscovering your memory of a sound, a sound that was important to you. They ask you to write it down on a piece of paper and mail it to SNYK:


Att: Kristine Bakken (Soundtracks)

Graabrødretorv 16, st. th.
DK-1154 København K

Soundtracks is exhibited as part of a sound art festival at Den Frie, Centre of Contemporary Art in Copenhagen, which runs from June 9 to 17, 2012.

NB: It is important for the installation that the memories are handwritten, so please do not send it by e-mail. It is up to you what language you choose for your memory.
