Launching a 14-day challenge for local residents and Greenwich Sound Image Festival participants, the Museum of Walking (Andrew Stuck & Marcin Barski) host an online workshop “How to make a (geo-located) sound walk and record sounds using a smartphone”. Participants will learn how to record and map the sounds of Greenwich borough, creating their very own listening experience & sharing the diverse soundscapes of the community.
Then join the challenges to record a sound walk or soundscape piece of your own and submit it to WalkListenCreate(with the chance of picking up an Award) and having your worked published and listened to by hundreds, maybe thousands of people around the world.
You will need:
A computer, tablet/iPad or smartphone for the on-line workshop plus an open mind, a pen and paper, a smartphone to record your sound walk later on.
What will take place:
Sound walk composition, the score and framework of a sound walk (similar to a story arc), from where to record and where to geo-locate or design for people to hear their recorded piece, drawing on examples from the WalkListenCreate archive of 250+ sound walks and soundscapes.
The on-line workshop will be recorded.
