«(Audio) moves» is the motto of this year’s SONOHR Radio & Podcast Festival. Audio pieces sound in the cinema, leave it, run on the radio, meet recipients in public space or wait online for an interested audience. Every listening situation is different. How does our listening change when we listen alone or together? Outside or inside? On the road or at home? Simultaneously or delayed? During three days, the festival offers real or imaginary forays through the urban space and the world beyond.

Introduction Palimpsest App (in German)

The choreographic sound installation «Palimpsest» by the choreographer Nicole Seiler explores the poetic possibilities of audio description. The roughly 15-minute long and site-related audio play encourages listeners to use their own imagination and physically act out the movements. The members of the audience stand in the outdoor area of Dampfzentrale and utilise a smartphone app to virtually follow Emma Murray’s dance performance.
