Listening to Aarhus Hovedbanegard

Listening to Arhus Hovedbanegard is one of a series of site-specific compositions created through a response to place.

As a stranger in a city I listen for clues to orientate myself: the bleep of a pedestrian crossing, the shout of a child, the buzz of the ticket machine. I write down the sounds I hear as texts or scores for the musicians to interpret. Their performance creates a unique audio portrait of the city.
