A Walk with Bongi through Alex. began nearly 800 kilometers to the south with Bongi Dhlomo-Mautloa's installation in progress at the Grahamstown Festival 2000. The idea emerged of not only showing the visual riches of the township but also documenting a day in its aural life.
From recordings made over a 24 hour period two and a half minutes were selected from each hour beginning at 9:30 on Sunday morning the 30th of July 2000.
Accompanying the recordings of ambient sound are some of the stories and commentaries that Bongi provided as we walked through the township. Two commentaries that were not directly connected to the specific location that was being recorded have been included as "dreams" (in the sense ones mind digesting the experiences of the previous day) in the early hours of Monday morning.
