Pauline Oliveros

  • Can sound help us to understand our environment?
  • Can listening help us to be present in each moment of the walk?
  • Can listening reveal the essence of a place?
  • Can we listen to the song of the walk? 

Viv:

“I would like to tell you about my practice as a walking sound artist. 
I lead group sound-walks- sometimes in silence, sometimes responding to the soundscape with our own sounds.
I’m a sonic flaneur who drifts through cities and sings with them.
Via Songlines and Song Paths of Indigenous peoples, I arrived at my long term, almost 20 year, project Shadow-walks, in which I walk with inhabitants of places on their special walks. Then I repeat the route alone, listening for the memory and traces of that walk and singing my response.”

Join Viv and moderator Geert Vermeire for a coffee, listen to Viv’s insights and discuss how we can listen with our feet.
