We walk together (2020) is thought as a field-recording score that asks would-be performers to think sonically about a place, to produce sound within that place, but also to reflect on the changes caused by the pandemic both at an environmental and subjective level. This collaborative endeavor is a continuation of my exploratory work in novel ways of curating sound artwork outside institutional frameworks. The resulting work, using a visual reference, is a multi-layered and multi-linguistic ‘sequence shot’: an audio piece that straddles the line between fiction, documentary and musical composition.

The sonic essay is a collaboration between a series of artists located in different parts of the globe: Rui Chaves (Loulé, Portugal, 25/06/2020), Eduardo Patrício (Koziegłowy, Poland, 17/06/2020), Laura Romero (Valencia, Spain, 06/06/2020), Lilian Nakao Nakahodo (Curitiba, Brazil, 05/07/2020), Luz da Camara (Evoramonte, Portugal, 19/06/2020).
