The Lie - Psychogeographical Soundwalk

A 30 minutes blindfold kind of kidnapping as acoustic sonorous procession listening throughour (6) different situations, times- and landscapes.

The procession moved between the subway station and the densely populated Million Program housing area of Hjulsta, throughout the buzzing insects and leaves rattling in the summer brieeze of local gadeningprojects fading in to one of the so called Green Wedges naturereserves of Järvafältet area*, up on a desolated hilltop bronze age burial ground, overhearing the ambience of a massive large scale construction site of higways. Start- and end point of the procession was inagurated by musical performance (bronze chimes and birch horn) by the artist. The soundwalk was finalized at the guerilla gardening project - Det Gror i Betongen/Gulliga Folkrörelsen. The founders and organisers Rafael Altez Calderon & Damir Radovic, presented their community work with perma culture, youth programs,  and awareness of landscape and the biotope of the area. Rafael Altez Calderon who is also of Inca descent also shared some of his experiences and wisdom regarding indiginoious struggles for identity, landrights and the importance of holistic understandings of the biotope, in both the Americas and Scandinavia.

The sound walk, talk, and performance was concluded with a short reading by the artist, of a chapter about urbanisation, city planning, chronotopes, spatiality, and the material history of congcrete (from egypt, via rome and onwards..), in Peter Lamborn Wilsons “Green Hermeticism”, before the participants was offered a communal cooking session and dinner of fresh vegetables from the actual alottment.
