Sound Walking

17 November, 2017, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join sound artist and lecturer Dr Sebastiane Hegarty for ‘Sound Walking’, a tour and sound installation exploring, through sound, key landmarks in Southampton.

You are invited to walk an ‘audible desire line’ through the soundscape of Southampton. This line maps a journey through the sounds of the present and previous landscape. Provided with a visual map of sonic pins, you can find and thread them together in any desired order and at a pace (and time) of your own choosing. The pinned locations will focus on identified sound marks in the everyday landscape. Field- recording will be used to create imaginary.

‘Sound Walking’ aims to engage an audience unfamiliar with sound art and issues concerning psychogeography and the sensuous mapping of landscape. As such, it will provide an opportunity for people to encounter and uncover the unheard sonic histories and soundscapes hidden in everyday environments.

Initial meeting point: Solent Showcase Gallery.

This event is part of the series Let’s get lost. Southampton as the Situationist city
