On Sunday May 23, at 7am, Vancouver Soundwalk Collective member Jamie Dolinko will conduct an individual, self-guided soundwalk around the Seawall at Stanley Park. In advance of the walk, a detailed map of the route and sound stops will be made available on the Vancouver New Music website and we invite you to undertake an early morning, self-guided soundwalk along the same route. You may walk or ride the route at your own pace on a date of your choosing with the map as a guide.
The walk (or ride) will stop at seven specific, mapped, locations along the Seawall and explore sounds, both natural and man-made, not normally heard during busier public hours.
The sound of the park waking up is a unique experience, and despite common locations and best laid plans, every soundwalker will hear something different!
*** To get the most out of the Soundwalk, we encourage you to complete the route in silence – without talking, headphones, or other distractions. This walk may be undertaken individually or with a friend or family member if you prefer not to walk alone. Please follow all Public Health restrictions, and do not gather in groups with people outside of your household or bubble. ***
Artist and Vancouver Soundwalk Collective member Jamie Dolinko has been leading soundwalks in Vancouver with Hildegard Westerkamp, Jorma Kujala, and others for 5 years. After studying sound with Nobua Kubota at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, and receiving an M.F.A. from the School of Visual Arts in noisy New York, she is currently living and making art in Vancouver. Dolinko is eternally grateful for her proximity to Stanley Park and the tranquility and solace it provides, especially throughout these pandemic times.
