Kleos celebrates the cartographic, cosmopolitan and environmental legacy of the first trip around the world by remixing species, spaces and music in the gardens and streets of Seville.
A soundscape, made of musical excerpts associated with the native territories of existing plants in the city, which are turned on as we approach them. A synesthetic experience that users can reshape based on their position in space while walking through the city or by changing the listening frequency in the app and the number of musical excerpts that sound at the same time.
Kleos is, therefore, an open work that aims to awaken the foreign and diverse memory that hides behind the everyday life, promoting a vision of gardens as spaces of coexistence.
“For the Homeric Greeks, kleos, fame, was made of song. Vibrations in air contained the measure and memory of a person’s life...” (The songs of trees: stories from nature’s great connectors, David George Haskell).
