The Listening Room Present: Soundwalks in Liverpool

18 & 27 October


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

Sessions usually consist of 3 x 20 minutes sessions with light intermission to share thoughts and reflections and then move on. The Listening Room takes you to undiscovered places: means of transport,your senses.
