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

    A soundwalk is a practice: it is walking without talking, focussing on the sound around, focussing on being there rather than talking about it.

    The soundwalk consists of 3 x 20 minutes sessions at a slow pace with light intermissions to share thoughts and reflections and then move on.

    Please be aware, that depending upon local conditions, the length can vary in time
    avoid bringing noisy bags and clothing,
    All welcome.

    Phil Morton has 30 years experience in the nature and practice of free improvisation. Pauline Oliveros, Maggie Nicols, Phil Minton, Simon H. Fell, Carlos Zingaro are a few important artists he has worked with.

    In 1998 the work of Murray R Schaffer and the concept of acoustic ecology came to Phils attention and broadened his interest beyond the boundaries of music and into sound. The act of listening itself now became a key feature of his work and interests. Phil Morton has made presentations at two conferences; designed and led listening-projects; and as a musician he has worked nationally and internationally. He has been leading and designing sound walks since 1998 through the Listening Room programme in Liverpool and the North West.

    Previous Listening Room soundwalk commissions include:
    The Liverpool Biennial, Sonic Gaze 2005
    Liverpool Hope University – Sound relay project.
    The Long Walk, Liverpool, for More Music 2007
