We are pleased to announce a new Deep Listening workshop in Berlin on 29 September. Also for our Soundwalk in Arnhem (NL) on 8 October, space is limited. Please email us to reserve a spot!
In October we will be hosting a late morning/early afternoon exploration of Park Sonsbeek, Arnhem (NL), opening with an introduction to Deep Listening practices and ending with a roundtable discussion on soundmapping and soundwalking.
Gathering point: Molenplaats Sonsbeek, Zijpendaalseweg 24A, 6814 CL Arnhem
Sunday 8 October
11:00-12:30: Deep Listening attentional processes and performing some of Pauline Oliveros’ seminal Deep Listening scores within a Soundwalk.
12:30-13:30: Lunch break (there is a café and restaurant close by)
13:30-15:00: Roundtable Discussion of Soundwalking and Sound Mapping
We would primarily like to hear from you during this roundtable: about your own experiences in creating or participating in soundwalks or with sound mapping.
At the moment Arnhem is undergoing extensive renovation of her downtown area, including an open waterway that will connect the beek (stream) of “Sonsbeek” to the Nederrijn. In terms of sound mapping or the creation of soundwalks, Arnhem has experienced very little cultural input or investment. If you look up geluidskaart (sound map), you get an overview of the municipality’s mapping of noise pollution.
This means that Mixes from the Field is interested in deepening, with you, our understanding of the possible benefits of soundwalking and sound mapping to a city so that we can create optimal planning for creative interventions, most likely in collaboration with Soundtrackcity, in 2018.
Due to limited space in our meeting area, we need to take reservations for the Roundtable discussion. Please email us to confirm your attendance and save your spot.
We’re looking forward to discussing Soundtrackcity’s ongoing research project, Sonic West, Amsterdam, with Michiel Huijsman and other (soundwalking) artists who are attending. If you would like to join for Deep Listening with Soundwalk in the morning (11am-12:30), a reservation is very welcome but not necessary.
You can contribute through your presence and/or preparing material or questions to present to the group. (Cookies/biscuits always welcome.)
