On this soundwalk I will be engage participants in their experience of the wooded soundscape, and making a sound map of the place, bounded by the Des Plaines River and River Woods Road. A soundwalk, as I offered in this piece, may be conducted in many different ways.

The short “What is a soundwalk?” video offers a media introduction on this practice.

Listening ahead, the final three soundwalks in Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology’s 2016 Night Out In the Parks series happen in December, in these parks on these dates, with these teaching artists:

  • Washington Park, Saturday, December 11 led by Norman W. Long
  • West Ridge Nature Preserve, Saturday, December 18 led by Eric Leonardson
  • Garfield Park Conservatory, Wednesday, December 21 led by Amanda Gutierrez

Land Lines | World Listening Day 2016 | Nature Conservancy of Canada

WLD2016logo-3Today my piece about World Listening Day 2016 posted on Land Lines, the blog of the Nature Conservancy of Canada.

This year’s theme is “Sounds Lost and Found.” It was devised by Nigerian sound artist, Emekah Ogboh who discussed this earlier today in the #SoundCon x #WLD2016 virtual symposium. This and many other cogent presentations from around the world are archived on the SoundCon.org YouTube Live platform. Read about my own 606 Soundscape project on the Bloomingdale Trail.
