for this project.
In my project I hope to create a self-paced sound walk that guides the participant into a more aware and detail-oriented state of listening. Most people that walk through the College of Fine Arts building every day go through the space without taking notice to the sound events occurring around them. I hope that by experiencing this work, people will find themselves more able to STOP AND LISTEN! I also hope that I will find new sounds and details in the space in the process of collecting sounds and creating soundscape compositions.
One of the biggest inspirations for this project is still Drive In Music by Max Nehaus – it greatly enhances the experience of normal day-to-day travel – but is beautifully non-invasive. I want to achieve this delicate balance in my own work.
Here are a few souvenirs from my most recent site observation:
