The site-relational sound-walk Entangled Formations weaves together stories and movements of different inhabitants of Prague, entangling local, migratory, and visiting humans and birds in a sonorous world that the audience can listen in on and delve into. Through the free downloadable sound-app Locosonic, listeners can walk around as they please in the landscape of carefully placed sounds activating the audio through their body’s movements, the app and the GPS of their phones. The listener's routes intermingle with the ones sonified, creating a non-linear narrative of past, present, and future.
The work encourages us to listen closely and relate more intimately to our immediate surroundings and whom we share our spaces and cross paths with. We are all part of an entangled network of different species and entities, what philosopher Timothy Morton refers to as the Mesh. A delicate, intricate, vast weave including all living and non-living things. Sound as an omnipresent and physical, yet highly ephemeral phenomenon is potent for representing this complex mesh that surrounds us, but that we do not always see or take into account. GPS and internet are ubiquitous phenomena as well, a completely integrated part of our ecology in our post-technological era. Its pattern can look like the threads of neuro-patterns, but also like bird migration routes. Lie’s interest lies in how our planet’s living and non-living creatures come into being together and how our life paths intertwine through histories and futures to come.
