The Ulysses Syndrome, a sonic voyage into our own abysses, speaks to those with never ending quests, to the nomads of the spirit and to those who haven’t capitulated in front of the horrific advance of banality and superficiality.

In the Fall of 2009, following the path of Ulysses, the SOUNDWALK collective embarked aboard an old rigged sailboat equipped with scanners and aerial antennae, for a sound Odyssey, recording the hertzian frequencies along the shores of the Mediterranean basin. Soundwalk continuously scanned and recorded all possible radio interceptions over a range of 40 miles around the boat, while closer to coast as well as far out at sea.

The 1500 hours of sonic material captured is the essence of the Mediterranean coasts: conversations of Libyan fishermen on Greek cargo ships, passing yachts on the Corsican coast and customs officers of the Bay of Naples, voices and whispers, excerpts of music, distant radio noises, morse code communication – are all represented in these sonic fragments like a tower of Babel. The resulting work is a sonic fresco of 24 hours, resonant of the 24 songs of Homer’s Odyssey.

À minuit du vendredi 3 Juin Soundwalk investit le Palacio Belmonte à Lisbonne avec Ulysses’Syndrome

En 2009, le collectif Soundwalk est reparti sur les traces dʼUlysse de Troie à Ithaque, à bord dʼun vieux voilier équipé dʼantennes à haute portée et de scanners, et a enregistré toutes les fréquences hertziennes le long des côtes de la Méditerranée.

Près de 1500 heures de son ont ainsi été capturées, constituant une cartographie sonore de la Méditerranée aujourdʼhui :  des conversations de pêcheurs libyens aux communications en morse des cargos grecs, en passant par les voiliers sur la côte corse et les douaniers de la baie de Naples. Voix, soupirs, musique, émissions radio, bruits des vagues et du vent…
