Chicago-based audio artist Eric Leonardson will lead soundwalks in two Urbana parks this week as part of the Sonified Sustainability Festival, to celebrate sustainable practices in the arts. The soundwalks aim to make people more aware of the sounds around them, both natural and man-made. Photo by David Zuchowski

This evening’s show was quite wonderful. We played for an hour and a half, and our attentive audience all stayed for an impromptu discussion afterward. We all didn’t expect this to happen and thoroughly enjoyed it. We felt so welcome…many thanks to Laura Shaeffer and Chris Hammes for making this happen.
