World Listening Day lunchtime soundwalk

FlightStats (Yeon bldg, 2nd floor, 522 SW 5th Ave)

Meet in the FlightStats cafeteria/lobby at 12:01pm...depart by 12:10pm....will probably stay in SW/downtown.



Sorry for the last minute notice! In appreciation of World Listening Day (today, Friday July 18th), I'll be guiding a soundwalk during the lunch hour.

Even if you haven't participated in active listening or other sound observation related activities before, I think you can enjoy a soundwalk. It's as simple as it sounds -- walking around (in our case an urban space) with the specific intention of hearing with our ears and contextualizing the sound content (mostly with respect to our physical surroundings).

When: 12:01pm

Where: FlightStats cafeteria, 522 SW 5th Ave, 2nd floor

Be prepared to walk outdoors at a mild/moderate pace for about 45 minutes. We won't be stopping for food, so be prepared to lunch before noon or after 1pm. I will also take a binaural recording of the trek and archive it publicly.

See you then!!
