A Slow Soundwalk – Take me to the river

Admission £2.00
Start Time 12:00
End Time 13:30

A soundwalk is a practice: it is walking without talking, focusing on the sound around, focusing on being there rather than talking about it. ‘A Slow Soundwalk’ takes you to undiscovered places: means of transport, your senses.

Sessions usually consist of three 20 minutes sessions with light intermission to share thoughts and reflections and then move on. The session is led by Phil Morton: acoustic ecologist, who has delivered soundwalks and listening projects in many and varied settings.

“When was the last time you went somewhere just to hear the sounds there? Whether experienced as private meditation or as collective silence, soundwalks refresh your ears and reset your sensual awareness to where you are, live or work

A path down Otterspool Park Path to the river taking in the sonic delights of the wood as we leave the road behind, a rare chance to slow down in the urban rush.

All welcome: avoid noisy bags and clothing, bring a friend and you won’t have to explain the journey to them later! Surprise yourself”

A slow soundwalk will be of interest to;

Musicians (as it involves listening to a sequence of sounds)

To recording artists (as one needs to appreciate the relationship between background and foreground sound, for example)

For electronic musicians (as it relates to the way timbres interact)

To planners and architects (as the sound is part of the atmosphere of a place and affects social responses).

Sound artist – (as an act of attentive listening as part of a preparatory methodology)

Everyone and anyone, (as an act of `ear cleaning`, a space of time to slow down and focus on the reality of sound in the present, to reset, refresh and re-engage)
