Internationally renowned Australian sound artist Ros Bandt collaborates with local artist and photographer, Konstantin Fischer, and historian Anja Zuckmantel: they invite the people of Hania to listen to their town with fresh ears. The installation “Listening through the Walls” in the Sabbionara Gate, combines sound recordings, sonic notations, photographs and historical information, all regarding the walls of the old city – the walls themselves and the spaces inbetween. Hania is a unique acoustic, social and architectural habitat built over thousands of years.
The people of Hania will be able to sign up for acoustic walks and to contribute feedback of their favourite listening spots as part of the exhibition. There will be artists' talks held at the venue, and four groups of pupils and students from Hania will participate in workshops, the outcome of which will be made visible to the public as part of the developing sound installation. The double CD Tarhu Connections, featuring the soundtrack from the exhibition will be launched with a live performance at the opening.
