C-60 (mins.) limited edition MIXTAPE from artists´outstanding sonic contributions to the LNT experience. This is a cassette-only release that includes private link to all the full-length A/V sets and aims to support sustainability in our communities and give value to our actions.
“A provocative take on the ‘Seven principles of ethical camping in the wildlife’ uncoils the extended audiovisual project originally conceived and premiered for the Threads*TAKEOVER Series.
Artists have been encouraged to heavily reuse content taken from the Internet to contaminate their sonic contributions, in a process of reverse exploitation of web protocols to maximise the impact of our presence—leaving no traces.
Whatever is found and reusable in the World Wild Web data-forest will be a possible source of the disruptive agency of artists. To warp and repurpose those materials into a sonic scribe of collective consciousness is what Leave No Trace has set out to investigate.”

LAST BUT NOT LEAST: we want to suggest to the public some starting links for readings / donations to associations / foundations that work to promote and support diversity in the great outdoor.
During the playful approach and research for visuals material to be re-used in LNT we were faced with a narrative (we grabbed things mainly from YT) of racial and gender discrimination in the great outdoor and related activities / sports. A sort of environmental imperialism, which often manifest under the guise of protecting “wilderness.”
We therefore opted for walks and hikes filmed in subjective vision, a few ones with alternative 'characters' or hilarious videogame representations of the standard narrative.
lots of links to take action / donate (American Trails)
