English Bay Soundwalk

Wednesday, November 9, 2011; 7:00-8:30PM

Meet just north of corner, Davie and Denman, by Yue Minjun’s A-Mazing Laughter artwork (aka ‘the laughing guys’)
Led by Andra McCartney (Concordia University), Soundwalking Interactions project

In this soundwalk around the English Bay area, we will have the opportunity to listen to and investigate adjacent, overlapping sonic ambiences of shopping areas, beaches, parkland, residential streets and roadways that characterize this part of Vancouver. The soundwalk will be preceded by suggestions about listening strategies and will be followed by a discussion of what we hear. The walk will take place rain or shine; please dress appropriately for the weather.

Presented by Vancouver New Music and the Vancouver Soundwalk Collective.
