What is a SOUNDwalk? In a soundwalk, the listening “audience” moves through a place and the environment “performs.” The walking listener and the environment create a unique piece together that can only occur during the time of the walk. In a soundwalk we take the time to hear the environment: we are its true ear witnesses. And like any musician, the environment offers us its sounds for our consideration.

SOUND TRAVELS commemorates WORLD LISTENING DAY and the birthday of R. Murray Schafer with two soundwalks and a concert. The first soundwalk explores the vicinity around NAISA’s home and will conclude with a multichannel soundscape concert. The second soundwalk will explore the car-free environs of Toronto Island and will be followed by a demonstration of the Synthecycletron sound sculpture by Barry Prophet.
