Soil to Sand/Sky to River

Walking piece details

CostFree

Soil to Sand/Sky to River is a co-composition between walker and the surrounding environments. Guided by artist Julie Hammond, walkers will move through St. Johns, from a grassy park tucked just behind a vibrant commercial district to the shore of the Willamette River below. Inspired by soundwalking practices of Hildegard Westerkamp, Christopher Small’s “musicking”, and Robin Wall Kimmerer’s writing on interconnection, this soundwalk invites listeners to consider proximity and vantage, ground and grounding, roots and reaching as they playfully pay attention to the earth below and the sky and structures above.
