Opening Awareness to Sound
A sound walk is a listening exercise designed to focus attention on the characteristics of sound that are often overlooked in day to day living. It can also be an aesthetic experience in which people develop their joy of listening by appreciating the richness of the sounds that occur around them. The soundwalks are led by local artist Peter Mcilwain who is a former academic in Music Composition and Sound Design and is an expert in sound and listening. They are held in the beautiful Birdsland Reserve away from traffic noise making it an ideal place for listening.
Feedback from walkers:
"Inspiring", ""I didn't know sound could be beautiful" and "I highly recommend this walk to anyone interested in experiencing this great public space.."
