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.
Hear Below: Listening to Chicago Underground on Saturday, Feb. 9 will explore the east to west route from the Illinois Center located at northeast corner of Lake Street and Michigan Avenue, passing through the South Shore Platform, Millennium Station, the Chicago Cultural Center, Macy’s, the Red Line station, Block 37, the Blue Line Station, and end near Starbucks below the Richard J. Daley Center. We will stop and listen to the unique sound environment of each of these segments of the Pedway, get a little history along the way and conclude with a conversation at the end of the soundwalk.
Midwest Society of Acoustic Ecology is happy to announce its third annual series with the Chicago Park District’s Night Out In the Parks program.
