NON:op Open Opera Works and Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology are pleased to announce our fourth annual HEAR BELOW: My Pedway Soundwalk, a self-guided soundwalk through the sounding space of Chicago’s underground pedway.
While other sightseeing tours of the Chicago pedway are offered to the public, Christopher Preissing’s approach departed from the typical visual emphasis for the aural. Soundwalkers listened for the distinctive sounds and ever-present tones that define the pedway’s many rooms, corridors, and their occupants.
