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.

Team London Bridge 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.

What you need to bring:

An open mind, a pen and paper, a smartphone and little else.

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.

Audience 16+ 

The on-line workshop will be recorded.

Walk Listen Create hosts Sound Walk September – a month-long global celebration of sound walks

During Sound Walk September there will run a challenge to record a sound walk for every day of the month, as well as an opportunity to contribute to Shorelines a geo-located collection of poetry and prose.

This free event is part of the on-line Totally Thames Festival booking is via Eventbrite managed by Team London Bridge

Get behind the microphone to discover how one makes compelling audio recordings that engage both armchair listeners and those of us out and about on foot. We are delighted to have brought together four creatives who have travelled to remote places, revealed hidden histories, and captured the soundscapes and voices of past and present, to enable us to sit back in comfort or stride forward to listen to what is unseen.
