Pauline Oliveros

Viv Corringham is a singer and walking sound artist who will host this walk · listen · café. Pauline Oliveros, Viv’s teacher, was a US composer and creator of Deep Listening.

  • 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.

Where are we when we walk?

9 Dec, 2021

Where are we when we walk? Are we here, in this place that our feet move through, or are we somewhere else, lost in thoughts and memories of other times and places?
