To mark the occasion, Cities and Memory: Dada Sounds celebrated a century of Dadaism by applying the techniques and practices of Dada to field recordings from around the world, bringing a Dadaist approach to the concepts of sound, place and memory and creating a new, Dada-inspired sound world.
The project features:
- 28 countries, taking in everywhere from Iceland and Canada and from India to Vietnam.
- Iconic Dada locations including Berlin, Paris and the very doorstep of the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich.
- 77 sound artists, musicians and field recordists taking part from across the world, each bringing their own interpretation to the project.
