Led by Hildegard Westerkamp

Dedicated to the memory of composer R. Murray Schafer who passed away on August 14, 2021.

Sunday, September 26, 2021; 1-2:30PM
(approx. 1 hour total walking time, followed by a half hour open discussion)
Meeting Location: By the chandelier under Granville Bridge, NE corner of Granville St and Beach Ave.

Soundwalks are free, but capacity is limited. Participants MUST register in advance.
If you do not register we can not guarantee that there will be a spot available for you on the day of the Soundwalk.

Schafer coined the term soundwalk and was the first to propose it as a form of active participation in the soundscape. All this happened right here in Vancouver in the early 1970s, when Schafer taught at SFU, headed the World Soundscape Project research group and wrote his seminal book The Tuning of the World. On this walk we will revisit some of Schafer’s early approaches to soundwalking and will test and contemplate their relevance and application through our own present day listening in times of Covid and the Climate Crisis.

Accessibility information: Light to moderate walking, possibly some stairs. The route can be adjusted around stairs with advance notice. Please contact [email protected] if you have any accessibility concerns or other questions.

This Soundwalk was conceived and will be guided by Hildegard Westerkamp, with assistance from Jorma Kujala, Jennifer Schine and other members of the Vancouver Soundwalk Collective.

Note: This walk will end near the north side of the Vancouver Aquatic Centre, about 1km from the starting point. We invite you to stay in the area following the Soundwalk to take in Ben Brown’s Sound Sculptures performance beginning at 3PM at The Swimmer public sculpture near the Vancouver Aquatic Centre.
