The initial impetus for SoundWalk arose from a certain ennui with the physical environment in which we function on a daily basis. Thus a question was born out of the experience of sameness with a f amiliar environment spawning numerous more questions. How could we make thi s interesting? What would make this place different? How could a change be challenging to the residents and visitors to this area? What if it sounded differently than it does? The questions lead to the modern concept of estra ngement which the German playwright Bertold Brecht explored for new twists in the theater experience. His expectation envisioned reflection as a part of the response to his plays which in turn would induce a fresh understandi ng of familiar concepts\, even hackneyed concepts. Reflection would complim ent the pleasure of watching the play unfold\, the sentiments felt through the characters in the play. It would be a richer experience. In this sense\ , the change of the sound ambience within an otherwise familiar and utilita rian environment will couch unexpected encounters\, unaccustomed relations between the sounds of the city and the installed interference with the ever yday perceptions.
