Viv Corringham comes to Chicago in March to talk about her Shadow-walks project. This began in 2003 and has occurred in 15 places in the USA, Canada and Europe. It is rooted in her interest in people’s relationship with familiar places, and involves three main elements: walking with others, listening to environmental sound, and her own improvised singing. She will play selections of work based on recent artist residencies at Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art in Portugal and the Deep Listening Institute in New York State. Viv is a vocal artist and composer based in Minneapolis, and a longtime member of the American Society for Acoustic Ecology.
