ORIENTEERING: Soundscapes for Walking

 On Thursday, April 12, 2018, Andrew Taggart and Chloe Lewis walked between three points in Bergen, Norway: From Entrée to Tag Team (which took approximately thirty-one minutes), from Tag Team to Palmera (thirty-nine minutes, give or take) and from Palmera to Entrée (a shorter walk of around twelve minutes). They recorded what they heard along the way: a soundcheck for an afternoon concert, jingling keys, and joggers’ feet on gravel, to name a few examples. Somewhere in the middle, they bought three 7-inch records from a small shop. They hadn’t heard the songs before, or heard of the musicians, but the records’ graphic paper sleeves, displaying shapes and lines in geometric configurations, looked a lot like walking paths, or winding routes on a map.

For their contribution to Orienteering, a group exhibition in public space produced by Entrée, Palmera, and Tag Team, Lewis & Taggart offer three soundscapes—one for each stretch of the walk connecting the three galleries—composed by blending their in-situ recordings with audio sampled from the vinyl singles.
