Jane's Walk SOUNDwalk

Sat May 04, 2013 12:00 - Sat May 04, 2013

Location:
Toronto, Canada

Join us for a lunch hour SOUNDwalk, exploring sound environments in the area of the Artscape Wychwood Barns. Participants should be sure to wear appropriate footwear and clothing for any weather condition.

What is a SOUNDwalk? In a soundwalk, the listening “audience” moves through a place and the environment “performs.” The walking listener and the environment create a unique piece together that can only occur during the time of the walk. In a soundwalk we take the time to hear the environment: we are its true ear witnesses. And like any musician, the environment offers us its sounds for our consideration.
