I’m interested in exploring our place in many different ways. With World Listening Day coming up on Monday 18 July, my partner John and I be undertaking a SoundWalk on Sunday 17 Julythrough the changing acoustic environments of our locality, Aspley. Starting at the centre on Gympie Road, to and through the Hypermarket, then along suburban streets to a the Chermside Hills Reserve and then back along the creekside walk, we’ll be walking and listening to the shifting qualities of sound. In particular, we hope to explore how the sound of traffic shapes our experience of place and community. After this walk – which should be about 8km – we’ll be in need of a coffee and chat about our experience.
We are inviting interested folk to join us on all or part of this walk and help create a community experience of listening in place. Remember to bring water, food and sunscreen. We’ve prepared a map of the route on Google Maps.
