18: Soundwalk

While Stephan Crasneanscki was working towards his Ph.D, he found that museum guides were lacking personality and feeling.

Now, Stephan travels the world with his collaborators to use sounds to bring attention to the experiences and people that may normally go avoided or unnoticed. Hear two of their recent works below:
