The festival will conclude with soundwalks in two Urbana parks. Eric Leonardson, a Chicago-based audio artist, will lead walks at Meadowbrook Park and Busey Woods to encourage participants to listen more deeply to the soundscapes of their environments. Leonardson is a performer, composer and sound designer, and a professor of sound at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The soundwalks will take place at 2:30, 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. April 27-28. The April 27 walks are at Meadowbrook Park and the April 28 walks are at Busey Woods. They are free, but tickets are required and the walks are limited to 25 people each.
