A “How to make a sound walk” workshop
Ever wondered what everyone walking around wearing head phones are actually listening to? Want merely to be a consumer or rather a creator of great listening experiences that people can enjoy outdoors? Join this exciting on-line workshop to learn how to make immersive sound walks and record soundscapes, with the opportunity of having your worked published and listened to by hundreds.
Chase & Chalke Landscape Partnership and the Museum of Walking have commissioned leading sound walk producer and sound artist, Marcin Barski from Krakow in Poland and London-based podcaster Andrew Stuck to lead this 75 minute on-line workshop in which you get to learn about planning, writing, recording, editing and locating a sound walk of your very own.
Then join the challenges to record a sound walk or soundscape piece of your own and submit it to Sound Walk September (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.
During Sound Walk September join the 30 Days of Walking challenge to record a sound walk for every day of the month, or contribute to Shorelines a geo-located collection of poetry and prose.
