Catherine Kontz’s soundwalk Wou d’Uelzecht – Esch has just become available!
Wou d’Uelzecht follows the river Alzette from its spring just the other side of the border in France, through to Esch, the first larger city it encounters in the South of Luxembourg. The recordings feature collages of voices and sounds from the past, binaural field recordings and new writings by S.L. Grange and a few new compositions for voice, flute and percussion.
New compositions which are included in this soundwalk include Catherine’s Metallurgy – an 8 minute metal percussion piece in six parts, and Density 8.05 for solo flute which is a nod to Varèse and relating to the density of steel. These pieces are performe by Guy Frisch (percussions) and Sophie Deshayes (flute).
Wou d’Uelzecht– Esch is a free family-friendly adventure and available in 8 languages LU, FR, DE, EN, PT, IT, AR, UK .
Make sure to check it out on your next visit to Luxembourg, or enjoy the audio from wherever you are in the world.Catherine Kontz
