At the present moment, on our computer screen we are confronted with a flow of images and texts that sometimes inform us and sometimes misinform us, sometimes terrorize us and sometimes reassure us, sometimes promise to keep alive our illusion that nothing has change. And yet, reality has changed and is changing every day. We observe it, we feel it, we know it. MOMus, continuing the “Resilience Project”, is expanding its resilience and wants to communicate more with everyone who needs it. Share with us an image created by you that has artistic qualities, in response to the conditions of confinement that we experience. The aim is not simply to create social substitutes for our loneliness, nor simply to protect basic values and acquired rights, but, under this extreme and unexpected condition of everyday life that has affected all of us indiscriminately, to redefine values such as freedom, equality, justice, free time, solidarity and access to the basic goods of health, education and culture. Comment our new, hopefully temporary, way of life and of communication with your own photo, your painting, drawing or other visual medium that may be in the form of image, animation, sound, text or video. Give your own tone and let's make the digital album of these days all together.

Το ηχοτοπίο της καραντίνας σε 2μιση λεπτά

Πρόκειται για το ηχητικό περιβάλλον της Θεσσαλονίκης, όπως το κατέγραψα κυρίως από το μπαλκόνι του σπιτιού μου (ζω κοντά σε έναν μεγάλο και πολυσύχναστο δρόμο) κατά της διάρκεια της καραντίνας σε διάφορες χρονικές φάσεις. Οι ήχοι από τον θόρυβο του δρόμου έδωσαν σταδιακά τη θέση τους στα κελαηδίσματα των πουλιών και το ηχοτοπίο της λεωφόρου έφτασε να θυμίζει ξαφνικά τροπικό δάσος. Ανάμεσα στα άλλα, ήχοι από το βράδυ της Ανάστασης και από περίπατους για "σωματική άσκηση" στο πάρκο και στην παραλία. Το ηχοτοπίο ως δείκτης της υγείας του οικοσυστήματος αλλά και ως μάρτυρας της τεράστιας αλλαγής που συνέβη στη ζωή μας.

  • Second Language Title: The soundscape of a lockdown in 2:30 minutes
  • Second Language Description: During the lockdown in Thessaloniki, I made some field recordings mostly from the balcony of my apartment, but also from other places at my neighborhood like the park, the streets and the seafront of Thessaloniki. Among the sounds that I recorded, were also the celebrations during the evening of Resurrection at Easter and the day of the Orthodox Easter which all took place at he balconies of the flats. As I live by a very noisy and busy avenue, I recorded this huge change of the soundscape, as the sounds of cars and horns were gradually replaced by the songs of the birds and an extended silence. The busy urban soundscape of my neighborhood started reminding me of a tropical forest.
