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

Podcasting via AudioBoo, shared field recordings, podcasts, Locus Streambox

AudioBoo_logoRecently, I started using AudioBoo and found it to be a fun social media “play thing” for posting field recordings. One interesting feature with potential for serious use is AudBoo’s ability to create a podcast in the iTunes Music Store. There you can download to the files or “boos” as well as subscribe to the podcast. You can tag your boos, search boos. This is the link for my AudioBoo. As in Twitter you can follow the profiles. You can also subscribe to everyone’s AudioBoos on the iTunes AudioBoos full podcast.
