Sounding Out: Bristol - Character and sound in the city

Walk: Thursday 15 March, 18.00, £6/£4. Booking through the Architecture Centre: 0117 922 1540.

Join us for a walking tour with a difference as Peter Insole and Nat Roberton of Bristol City Council lead a walking tour around Bristol’s Harbour area. They will consider the history of the docks and the Harbour’s change of use over time, to focus on how sound contributes to an area’s sense of ‘character’.

I am encouraged by Mark Leach's comment about soundwalks. Let's discuss doing some through the Architecture Centre (me - Programme Coordinator). Nat, are you interested? Let's talk routes, aural qualities of places. Suggestions welcomed...

I went on Steve Crawshaw's soundwalk at Arnos Vale, it was great, with lots of 'listeners' ready to engage and contribute to Steve's research project. It was part of the action research that Steve undertook for 'Ways of Hearing': http://soundandmusic.org/projects/ways-hearing, a national project that the Architecture Centre in Bristol were local partners for.

I like this piece of work done by our colleague Mr Steve Crawshaw:

Soundwalks should be encouraged

An interesting link providing by new group member Mark.

 


"When I hear what we call "music", it seems to me like someone is talking; and talking about his feelings or about his ideas of relationships. But when I hear traffic, the sound of traffic, here on sixth avenue for instance, I don’t have the feeling that anyone is talking. I have the feeling that sound is acting."

John Cage, New York, 4 Feb 1991
