Soundwalk is an international sound collective based in New York City. In the early 2000s, Soundwalk made its name by producing cutting-edge audio guides, mixing fiction and reality to provide an exclusive and poetic discovery of a city, on the bridge between Baudelairian stroll and cinematic experience. Critically acclaimed, Soundwalk has won several accolades including the Audie Award in 2009 for the Beijing and Shanghai Louis Vuitton series, as well as the Dalton Pen Award in 2005 for the Ground Zero Sonic Memorial with Paul Auster, and the 2004 Audie Award for the Bronx Soundwalk with Afrika Bambaataa. Over the past 10 years, Soundwalk has collected, distilled, and re-interpreted sounds from all over the world to create immersive sound journeys, radically modern in their conception. Soundwalk's art projects range from site-specific installations to geo-specific performances that include sound, video, and custom-made objects. Soundwalk has performed and exhibited at leading museums and cultural institutions around the world, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, MADRE Museum of Contemporary Art in Naples, Shanghai World Expo, Abu Dhabi Biennial of Art, Maison des Arts de Creteil, and Chanel Mobile Art.
