Sound walk to the Lake Altenweiher

" An astonishing and gentle stroll, carried by the graceful musical creations of Jim Petit, inspired by the sounds of the Altenweiher lake... Dive in! "

Set off on an original discovery of Lake Altenweiher in the company of composer Jim Petit. After a hike from Mittlach to the lake, you'll listen through headphones to the musical piece created by Jim using soundscapes and dowser pendulum analysis of the lake's waters to program his synthesizers and learn about the musical notes of the Altenweiher over the seasons. The sound experience blends with the view of the lake and the sound of day.


As a complement to the sonic encounter with this lake, Jim suggests that as you hike, you discover the sonic vibration of the Kolben bridge in times of flood and the tumult of the lake's spillway stream in times of snowmelt.
