WSIU Public Radio, a public media station of Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and the Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology invite the general public to a Fall Soundwalk on the SIU campus on Tuesday, October 23 beginning at 12pm. The soundwalk will start at the rock wall located at the north entrance of the SIU Student Center and should last approximately one hour. A rain date for the event has been set for Tuesday, October 30 at noon.
“Soundwalks celebrate the practice of listening as it relates to the world around us,” says Armstrong. “I plan to introduce listening exercises to deepen the soundwalk experience for participants and to acclimate them to different ways of hearing their surroundings.”
