SYNOPSIS

Medea is a sound journey around the Black Sea.
An original composition based on recordings of radio waves as well as voice and sound fragments collected by Soundwalk Collective during a two-month crossing in a sailing boat specially equipped with scanners, microphones and high-range aerials.
Medea reaches into Turkey, Georgia, Russia, Crimea, Ukraine, Romania and Bulgaria and embarks on a sound reading of a region of the world whose quivering beauty remains cruel and obscure – akin to the ancient Medea.
