The Sonic Gaze in William Brown Street

The Listening Room | Sonic Gaze | Liverpool
Listening to architectural space : the sound of the built environment.

 

Thursday 30th November
William Brown Street

When was the last time you went somewhere just to hear the sounds?
The atmosphere of a place is created by the sounds as well as the vision. Sounds are not usually static, but come as events in time.
How often do you pay attention to this?
How does this affect our response to place?

Whether experienced as a private meditation, or as collective silence SOUNDWALKS will refresh your ears and reset your sensual awareness of where you live, work or visit.

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.
