Spring Soundwalks 2013

Listening to the Periphery at Kitsilano Point

Sunday, May 5, 2013; 2–3:30PM

Led by Jessica Hallenbeck, Tyler Kinnear, and Sarah Ling
Meet Location: Chestnut St at Whyte Ave

This walk will lead listeners around Kitsilano Point.  Participants are invited to reflect on the act of listening on Coast Salish Territory.  What sounds go unnoticed in our day-to-day routines?  Is our listening encultured in any way? Letting our ears guide us, participants will explore some of the erasures, silences, resistances, and displacements of this cross-cultural urban space.  The walk will take place rain or shine.  Please dress accordingly.

World Sound Music and Noise

Sunday, May 12, 2 – 3:30PM

Meeting Place: The Waterfall Building, 1540 West 2nd Ave., near Granville Island.
With: Elisa Ferrari, Landon Larose, and Hildegard Westerkamp

Our moving ears will explore the waterfront near and on Granville Island, its nooks and crannies, open spaces and indoor places, encountering sounds, musics, languages and noises of the world around us and from far away. Let your ears be surprised by the unusual, the familiar, and the extraordinary in the soundscape.

Presented by Vancouver New Music and the Vancouver Soundwalk Collective.
