As the final programmatic element to his ‘scapes BOLT exhibition, Norman W. Long (MSAE) will take participants on a sound walk of the West Loop. Long will retrace his field-recording walks in a different season with a decidedly different technology (our ears). A sound walk is a guided or unguided tour where one listens to their environment. We will be mindful of sounds that drift by, come to the forefront, drop in the background, stay with us and fade away. The sounds we listen to become part of our own stories or lives and affect us in a similar way of language. A sound walk is important to our understanding of place and how we define our communities.
Participants will gather outside the front door of the Chicago Artists Coalition, located at 217 North Carpenter Street, at 11 a.m. to commence the tour.
