Now that most of us have to acclimatize to the 'lockdown' or 'quarantine' or '(self)isolation' (this, whatever this is, comes under different names coupled with different regulations), we feel disconnected from the environments that used to shape up our existence. For many people the 'outside' (again, defined differently under various legal regimes) has become a paradoxical blend of the 'social' and the 'antisocial,' a lure, a hazard, an archetypical siren that enthralls and repels at the same time. According to multiple news reports, some of us — failing to withstand the siren's call — took to borrowing other people's dogs and walking them. But what if instead of walking someone else's pet — you could ask someone else to walk a piece of you?
This is what I'll Walk Your Voice is about. Send me a sample of your voice — this can be a short story, a few unimaginative phrases, a drawn-out grunt, a recording of you singing, or anything else your voice can do. I'll take it to a large park in Moscow, play it against the soundscape, and send the recording back to you. I'll be using high quality mono speakers and a ZOOM H6 recorder to make sure that the recording is clean and realistic. Depending on how many people wish to participate (the more the better), I might also produce more complex mixes or even make it into an installation.
Long story short, I wish to Walk Your Voice in a Moscow forest.
