Audio walk Jena-Cospeda – "Remembrance field Windknollen 1806"
Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller – presented with the Botho-Graef art award by the city of Jena in 2004 – have created an interactive walk in which the visitor can go on an acoustic journey through the area where the Battle of Jena-Auerstedt took place in 1806 with an MP3 player with headphones. The participants are led through a predetermined route with a multi-layered soundtrack, the ghostly voice will be accompanied by instructions and also by a dense mixture of voices and noises – people passing by, the thunder of explosions, the sounds of battle and horses whinnying as they gallop past.
