What you'll do

Experience Prague with your ears! On this 2-hour long listening tour through some of Prague's less crowded and less noisier places, you will be given the opportunity to revel in the richness of unique sonic phenomena present in Prague's urban soundscapes. After a brief introduction and a short attentive listening exercise, we will set out to Vyšehrad, one of Prague's unique landmarks abounding in sonic phenomena and offering magnificent views of the city. There, we will step into a sonic sanctuary, free ourselves from the everyday hustle and bustle of the city and find repose amidst chirping birds, resonating bells from a nearby church or the distant sounds of squeaking train tracks. We will make some recordings along the way, so you won't be leaving Prague empty-handed. Forget about pictures, you'll be bringing home sonic memories of Prague!

Martin

As a musician, field recordist and music journalist, I find myself constantly surrounded by sounds. Wherever I go, I always carry a handheld recorder and a set of microphones with me, eager to capture any fascinating sounds that may engage my ears. Over the last 5 years, I have made field recordings in such sonically diverse sites as the Papuan rainforest, Austrian Alps and Berlin underground. And now I'd love to share my passion with the visitors of Prague who wish to experience the city in a slightly different way, opening up their ears to the immense wealth of sonic phenomena surrounding us!

Where you'll be

Perched on a hill above the Vltava river, the stately Vyšehrad (High Castle in Czech) is a Baroque fortress with a unique mystical energy. Compared to the busy Prague Castle, Vyšehrad is much less frequented by tourists. The Basilica of St. Peter and St.Paul with its carillon, the river below with boats frenetically sailing to and fro and the nearby train tracks provide the major sonic backgrounds to the Vyšehrad soundscape.

More tips

During the soundwalk, it is vitally important to be as silent as possible and avoid talking to each other. We will be walking uphill for a while, but the walk will not be physically demanding.
