Soundwalk is a silent experience open to an individual or collective journey.
Soundwalk will invite you to imagine sounds of the past, present, and future that are heard internally and externally to our ears.
Soundwalk is rooted in deep listening and re-attuning our aural awareness through opening our ears to the activities in the soundscape.

The event will begin and end with soundmaking acts enacted by the performers of Virago; Sofia Carbonara (percussion), Wesley Hornpetrie (cello), BethAnne Kunert (saxophone), and Meg Rohrer (violin/viola).
Participants will be invited to join the soundmaking at the final soundmaking act.
The event will conclude with an open dialogue for participants to share their listening experiences.

Accessibility information: Light to moderate walking. The route can be adjusted with advance notice. Please contact Akari Komura ([email protected]) if you have any accessibility concerns or other questions.
