Starting location: Chinese Arch, Duke Street

Soundwalk: taking you to undiscovered places,
The LONG WALK SOUNDWALK is a journey led by Phil Morton from frakture, and Steve Lewis from More Music. Soundwalk ....

A walk that is experienced rather than explained, An alterntaive exploration of the environment
The city revealed through attentive listening and collective silence .

THE LONG WALK is a project that is a response to the Morecambe Bay tragedy of 2004. It is being created by acclaimed community music company MORE MUSIC working with a number of Liverpool collaborators over the next 4 months towards performances on March 14 and 15th 2008.

The project considers issues of displacement, exploitation and journey that are relevant to people, whatever their background or nationality.

The Listening Room presents
Eric Wilson & i:Object, a sound with objects spectacular !
16th & 30th of November. 1.00pm - 3.00pm free
Mello Mello: jazz bar, Slater Street, Liverpool

Eric Wilson: found objects play found human.

Eric Wilson is The Listening Room's resident card carrying, fully subscribed sound-artist . This could be his first fully fledged appearance! his presence at the Stairway to Memory, and Oud revisited gigs at the mello mello were compromised by his involvement in the basement toilet regarding the such key questions as; what's it all about and do you call that music:

Eric says, I most apologise for letting the lads down (musicians: Phil Lucking & Phil Morton) but it has been some time since I've heard those immortal words: "my son of 4 could play that!" and I foolishly responded to the bait: 2 hours later I left the toilet, and those mugwumps none the better for it.

For the 16th & 30th I will be there: it is a solo performance.

The Listening Room Phil Morton’s “unique club” returns to live music, its last show was Friction d Phil Morton / Tatsuya Nakatani from NYC/Japan & guests on the 17 th December 2004! What’s he been doing? Sadly to report, too much pen pushing rather than to much sound-pushing.

The opening lunchtime concert features Bonehouse and their Stairway to memory set, re-visiting the now demolished flats of Kenley Close, Sheil Road. Come along and be taken back to un-discovered and forgotten places. The two Phil’s are accompanied by Eric (I am confused already!) Wilson, sound artist, soundscraper & soundscaper!

Come along. We’ll be glad to hear from you.

Soundwalk: Take me to the river

Saturday 29th September 2007, 11.00 - 12.30 am £1.00
Otterspool Park Gates
Aigburth Road / Jericho lane
Liverpool L17 5AN.

A soundwalk is a practice: it is walking without talking, focusing on the sound around, focusing on being there rather than talking about it. The walk usually consists of 3 x 20 minutes sessions with light intermissions to share thoughts and reflections and then move on.

Take me to the river: Slow soundwalk

“When was the last time you went somewhere just to hear the sounds there? Whether experienced as private meditation or as collective silence SOUNDWALKS refresh your ears and reset your sensual awareness to where you are, live or work.........

This is a special slow walk, Phil Morton leader of this Soundwalk:TAKE ME TO THE RIVER: takes you on a path that lasts 10 minutes at a brisk pace, but today will take an hour. This path down through Otterspool Park to the river will take you through a range of sonic delights; of the wood as we leave the road behind, the bridge and finally we open up and out into the great blue horizon of the Mersey Estuary and Welsh mountains.

This is a rare chance to slow down in the urban rush. For musicians it is a chance to open your ears to a bigger palette of sounds. It is an exercise in ear-cleaning, it is good fun too!

All welcome, all ages: avoid noisy bags and clothing, bring a friend and you won’t have to explain the journey to them later! Surprise yourself”


Street map  : The postcode location is L17 5AN. This map is OK but slightly wrong, the arrow points to a disused Otterspool Road: we meet at the junction of Jericho lane and Aigburth Road, which you can also see on the map.

LISTENING ROOM Friday 23 February 2007

ANTHONY BRAXTON is the subject of Roger Parry's one hour of mainly music with some comments. Mr Braxton is a prolific creator of music running the entire 'creative' gamut.
This will be a tasting! Roger became aware of Mr Braxton's music in the early seventies and in the intervening thirty years has become a personal friend of the musician.

Highly recommended session
