“Mythen der Moderne” is an urban sound walk project, where stories and sounds of a certain part of the city are collected and then turned into a sound walk where the participants walk with headphones thought the streets to different points, listening to soundscapes that tell a little about the history of the place.

Not used to the crazed way the Münster people race around on their bicycles, I was quite glad to be able to blend into the mass, as I slowly and carefully navigated around the city on my borrowed bicycle.
