A Soundwalk isâ€¦
â€¦for everyoneâ€™s enjoyment and learning
â€¦opening our ears to every sound in the environment
â€¦a rare opportunity for listening in a social group
A Soundscape isâ€¦
â€¦the experience of sound in your landscape
â€¦always active and changing
â€¦at times subtly affective and informative, but often unnoticed
â€¦a natural resource, or a design made in sound
