We Must Walk: The Moray Way

room 73 ECHOES

Elgin

The Moray Way Soundwalk presents liminal moments using stories, memories, and atmospheres. It captures moments while walking that are so fleeting and familiar, that they are often missed. This sound map covers the 100 mile walking route of the Moray Way in Scotland and is a tool for walking and thinking. A walk aims to encourage an awareness of our environment using sound. Yet, it is also about the pleasures of listening to the unique voice of a community that walks. By listening to the soundscapes and audio clips during your walk, the sounds offer an insight into the rhythm, history, ecology, and community of the Moray Way.

This sound map was created and produced by Lise Olsen, who became the artist in residence for The Moray Way Association, in July 2021. Her practice involves walking the 100-mile-long circular route, collecting stories from the community, and defining the in-between experiences happening within a dramatic Scottish landscape. Lise questions “Can listening while walking capture the tangential way of thinking that walking provokes?”
