The Great “B” is an audio walk along the most notable points in any Balkan city: the mosque, the river bridge, the outdoor market and the orthodox church. During the walk, the listener becomes witness to everyday encounters, fragmental conversations, music, minor interruptions, all together, the characteristics of the Balkan life. The listener becomes one with the place and its local history, yet they remain free to orchestrate it, fast it forward or pause it and continue it in another Balkan city.
The audio walk, created in Banja Luka (Bosnia and Herzegovina), is the prototype of a walk that can be experienced in any Balkan city, and which listeners are encouraged to try in various settings. Its name, given by the shape of the walking route, is not a restriction on how the listener must navigate themselves along these points, but, rather, a visual symbolism of the cultural commonalities in the Balkans. The Great “B” can be reversed, distorted, or be placed up-side-down, it can take longer or shorter to walk, or, simply be experienced as a soundscape.
