Beatrixpark, Amsterdam with a presentation at Kunstkapel, Amsterdam

BMB con., Justin Bennett‘s collaborative performance project, developed the listening walk Op expeditie naar de luisterhorizon for Soundtrackcity’s Urban Sound Lab.

On Sunday 28 November 2021, 15.00 h, the official presentation of the Beatrixpark listening guide ‘Op expeditie naar de luisterhorizon’ will take place in the Kunstkapel in the Beatrixpark. This brand new guide offers a soundwalk through the park, including 10 ‘listening exercises’.

With the guide, you can take a walk through the park in search of the so-called ‘listening horizon’. What do you hear in the park? How ‘far’ can you listen? How is what you hear influenced by the trees and bushes in the park? What influence does the presence of the motorway have?

The guide is developed in the frame of Urban Sound Lab, in cooperation with artists from the BMB con. collective and produced with the support of the Friends of the Beatrixpark. Marleen Munniksma, chairman of the Friends will open the presentation. Together with BMB con. we will do one of the listening exercises in the park. In addition, a number of people will tell about their personal listening experiences in the Beatrixpark.


The listening guide will be available at the release for the one-time introductory price of € 5.

The number of participants is limited due to corona, so assure yourself of a place by sending an e-mail to communicatie@soundtrackcity.nl
