Soundwalk: lanscape as performance

Take Me To The River: Slow Soundwalk

Thursday 29 March  18:15 – 20.00 £2.00

Meet at Otterspool Gates
Aigburth Road/Jericho Lane
Liverpool L17 5AR

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 Listening Room takes you to undiscovered places: means of
transport, your senses.

Sessions usually consist of 3 x 20 minutes sessions with light
intermission to share thoughts and reflections and then move on.

The session is led by acoustic ecologist Phil Morton,  who has
delivered soundwalks and listening projects in many and varied
Liverpool Soundwalks: Take me to the river: A Slow Soundwalk

“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

To-nights walk is a special slow walk: a path that lasts 10 minutes at
a brisk pace will take an hour.

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, maybe include an umbrella,
bring a friend and you won’t have to explain the journey to them
later! Surprise yourself”
