Charleson Park Soundwalk
Sunday, August 16, 2015; 8-9PM
Led by Jean Routhier
Meeting place: Love Your Bean Sculpture by Cosimo Cavallaro (look for the big and colorful kidney-shaped rocks) close to the seawall near the children’s playground/off leash area in Charleson Park (999 Charleson Rd.) [map]
This soundwalk will be approximately 60 minutes in length. This route explores the immediate neighbourhood around Charleson Park. Across from the downtown area, bordered by a small body of water, a busy pedestrian/ cycle path and a popular park, it features a more intimate soundscape with interesting acoustic perspectives as sound travels across the water divide. The soundwalk will end by the site of the LocoMotoArt exhibit. The soundwalk takes place rain or shine, please wear appropriate footwear and clothes for the weather, be aware the park will have uneven terrain.
This is a partner event between Vancouver New Music (VNM), an organization dedicated to exploring and contextualizing new music and sonic art, through concert presentations, festival, community, and workshop events, and LocoMotoArt Collective.
