Home Knowledge Sound Walk



Home Knowledge Sound Walk

Performance


Home Knowledge Spectacular, North Branch Projects, Chicago, IL, March 2012



These are the recordings from the sound walk.

From the program:


Norman Long a workshop on Silence and Listening. I'd like to make a presentation about how we perceive and define space and place through sound. I will do this by organizing a sound walk of the area of the North Branch projects. We will be experiencing the neighborhood through listening. Our route will take us through the commercial area on Lawrence, The North Branch of the River, Eugene Field Park, Gompers Park and the residential points in between.  Many local residents may be familiar with what the neighborhood looks like. I would like for them to focus on how this area sounds, what sounds define this neighborhood and their relationship to this area via sound.

Toronto Soundscape 2006






Toronto Soundscape 2006


This is an audio sketchbook for an electroacoustic piece featuring sounds recorded from Church Street in Toronto in October 2006. These pieces will make up a electroacoustic composition based on these recordings. I was inspired to work on these recordings after I had seen Mark Bradford's paintings at the MCA Chicago.
