Lime Street Station: Liverpool : Sonic Gaze
Venue: Lime Street
Liverpool : Sonic Gaze
Saturday 6th April 11.00am
This session has Lime Street Station, Liverpool as the starting point.
The four sites to be listened to are Lime Street Station, Edge Hill Station and the two train journeys connecting the two stations. These offer a mix of human-made and natural sound.
There is a mix of size of spaces, from the open platform to the connecting tunnel, the waiting room and the interior of the Lime Street Station.
A ‘soundwalk’ is a practice: it is walking without talking, focusing on the sound around, focusing on the present moment. In a `Sonic Gaze` session, the participants are static, though the sounds could be mobile. Talking might come later.
Sonic Gaze 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)
