Lili Stern – Bálint Antal: Soundtrack of the City
Do you think that the apathy we often feel towards each other and our environment is an important global problem? You don’t have enough time to process the impact of our city? Do you feel like communal spaces are neglected and unused in Budapest?
Soundtrack of the City is a silent city tour where we will have a walk in the 8th district of Budapest, while listening to music, the sound of the city, occasionally making decisions about the route of the tour together. The tour is about silence, about music and about the city of course. We think that our tour is a great opportunity for anyone who would like to get to know Budapest on a deeper, more personal level through non-verbal ways.
Who are we?
I am Bálint Antal, I’m studying at the University of Theatre and Film Arts in Budapest. Apart of my university studies my passion is music, I’m really interested in finding ways to bring music and dramatic methods together. I’m also writing my thesis about the possible combinations of music pedagogy, theatrical forms and politics. Moreover I’m playing in numerous bands as well, which are in the style of punk, hardcore/punk and screamo. The DIY (do it yourself) attitude of these subcultures means a lot to me, and I’m trying to really live my life amongst the lines of these aesthetics.
I was graduated at ELTE Apáczai Csere János High School at the literature department in
