Sound Walk Sunday
An international project bringing together sound walks and sound walkers from across the globe. Sound Walk Sunday 2019 will be hosted in Frome by LISTEN. Andrew Stuck from SWS and Geert Vermeire from Made of Walking will join us for the day to walk, talk and listen.
Underneath the Arches: Nick Sorenson
A soundwalk along the Kennett and Avon canal from The Holburne Museum, Bath to Avoncliff Aqueduct by saxophonist Nick Sorensen.
He will perform an improvisation underneath the arches of the bridges, tunnels and aqueducts along the route, responding to the specific acoustics of each of the sites.
The walk will commence at 10am on 1 September 2019 at the front of the Holburne Museum.
Utopia a drift for dancers and silent walkers: Geert Vermeire
A silent walking and movement performance directed by Geert Vermeire. Utopia is a performative silent walk, adapted to each place and shaped by the participating dancers/walkers, and organized since 2016 in Braga (Portugal), Brasilia, New York, Queens, Brussels, Ypres, Athens and Nicosia.
The walk is accompanied by a Utopia soundscape, ‘Hythlodaeus 2015’.
This will be available in the Listening Hub, Black Swan Arts, Round Tower Gallery, 10am - 3pm on Sound Walks Sunday 1 September 2019.
Sound walking today: Listening in between lines of past and future.
