A Sonic Map of Alexandria is part of the Alexandria Streets Project, an experiential mapping and audio art project that investigates relations between people and spaces in Alexandria, Egypt. Developed on the streets of the Mediterranean city almost two years after the January revolution of 2011, during the presidency of Mohammed Mursi, the work is alive today as an archive of stories, voices, music and sounds of Alexandria’s reality in fall/winter 2012 and can be considered as an example of writing Egyptian social, political and cultural history in times of transition.
A Sonic Map Of Alexandria premiered in November 2012 and since then has been featured in the form of sound installations, performative presentations, talks and listening events as well as in print and on several international independent and public radios in Berlin, Alexandria, Cairo, London, Marrakech and Shanghai.
