Join us as we follow along two artist-selected routes in the city of Regina, making sounds, listening creatively, and learning from our tour guides about natural and constructed environments. How does the soundscape impact us? How have people changed it? The Sound Ecology Walking Tours will mix art, science, acoustics, and deep listening in a friendly and conversational group activity. Both tours will take place on Saturday, October 13th, specific times as follows:
4:00pm. Meet at the pedestrian bridge over Wascana Creek near Cameron St and Regina Ave (map below). Tour guide Heather Peat Hamm will lead us through acoustic spaces from hard, reflective city edges into an absorptive scene of nature.
8:00pm. Meet at the Victoria Park cenotaph. Tour guide Charlie Fox will lead us through varied and contrasting urban ambiences, from the park to the mall, from the casino to the rail yard. Please bring an acoustic or electronic musical instrument or object for group sound making along the way.
Free activity! Everyone welcome!
Dress warm! Fun!
Meet up at the specific locations and times. Tours will last one hour.
