exploring the role of sound in natural and cultural environments
Join us for the 2023 MSAE Summer Soundwalk Series!
MSAE is very excited to announce our 2023 Summer Soundwalk schedule!
In partnership with Night Out In The Parks and the Chicago Park District, our program consists of a series of guided soundwalks, workshops and training sessions that engage multi-generational communities in their own neighborhoods. Participants will listen to and for cultural and natural features of the landscape. Rivers, streets, residential and commercial dwellings, traffic patterns, human and animal sounds all feature in these soundscapes. Are plants tuning in, contributing, or responding to all this sound? Are sounds and voices gendered? Each walk will be led by a local sound artist who provides a unique thematic focus.
Come listen in the parks with us! Any and all are welcome!Check out the schedule of events below:
