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
