What is a soundwalk?

A soundwalk, simply put, places all focus on our acoustic environment as we travel through it. Focussed listening exercises can take place anywhere. The emphasis is always on deep listening. The purpose is to develop our listening skills and to learn more about our sonic environment and our place within it.

This analysis of soundwalking by Hildergard Westercamp was re-published most recently in: Autumn Leaves, Sound and the Environment in Artistic Practice, Ed. Angus Carlyle, Double Entendre, Paris, 2007. It gives an insight into the fundamental reasons for taking part in such soundwalks. Click here to read it.
