Little Nature during Walden Festival 2024 – in collaboration with Soundcamp

Multimodal Participatory Project 

Little Nature is an innovative project that invites participants to take part in an open workshop developing a micro-radio station. Together with two experienced artists from Soundcamp, we will explore the sounds of Het Klankenbos in Pelt and the various spaces around the Walden Festival in Brussels. From the natural environments to the dynamic sounds of the festival itself – everything will be covered.

During this activity, participants will work with Soundcamp to learn how to make field transmitters, microphones and other sensors. These will be placed in buildings, ponds and other less-heard places to capture live sounds. These sounds are then made available for collective listening in the radio station and can also be listened to online outside opening hours. In this way, we encourage informal conversations about the role of sound in both urban and rural areas, and explore the similarities and differences between these sounds.

Little Nature provides a playful and critical place for listening to and creating sounds, and for having conversations and discussions about sound ecologies, rhythmic analysis, micro FM and creative, participatory technologies. It is a unique opportunity to broaden your horizons and discover new perspectives in the world of sound.

As part of Sounds Now, co-funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme.

Multimodal Participatory Project 

This production, presented at the Walden Festival, involves the audience directly in the creative process through a DIY instrument. The musical works are created by local communities new to music, in collaboration with artists. The goal? A high-quality artistic result is nice, but the priority is to create a meaningful musical experience for the audience. […]
