Narrowing the distance between music and performance art, Soundwalk Collective can be an ensemble that produces recordings, performance parts, and installations predicated on diverse thematic elements. Soundwalk Collective was founded in 2000 by Stephan Crasneanscki, an musician blessed in the Ukraine who today lives in NEW YORK, where he works together with collaborators Simone Merli and Kamran Sadeghi. The Collective associates describe their are combining components of “character, anthropology, ethnography, nonlinear narratives, psychogeography as well as the exploration of documenting and synthesis.” A lot of their functions are designed around ambient digital soundscapes coupled with readings or discovered sounds. Their items include “WHAT WE SHOULD Keep Behind,” a cooperation with filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard made of audio recorded through the capturing of his movies, and “Jungle-ized,” where they beamed the seems from the Amazon rainforest into an eight-block portion of New York’s Instances Square. In 2014, Soundwalk Collective collaborated with musician, poet, and writer Patti Smith and her girl, musician Jesse Paris Smith, for a bit titled Killer Street, that used music and recitation to chronicle the final day in the life span of musician and Velvet Underground associate Nico. In 2014, Killer Street was performed in NEW YORK and Berlin; in 2016, the piece premiered as an recording, combining studio room recordings with live recordings from the 2014 stagings from the piece.
