On the Streets of Alexandria

The Alexandria Streets Project by Berit Schuck and Julia Tieke presents selected extracts from a soundscape research into Alexandria – its contemporary sounds, its sonic trajectories and its historical traces. The structure of this online-soundscape-resource is open to further additions, inspirations and elaborations and it is also supported by sound art-savvy colleagues from Deutschlandradio Kultur here in Berlin

If you dive into the tastefully and historically adequate created map, you may experience the truly site-specific sonic shapes of Alexandria. It is a mission to listen to this urban agglomeration and its inhabitants, its tourists, its masses. A great way to get into contemporary Egypt these days. Enjoy!
