A soundwalk is a practice: it is walking without talking, focussing on the sound around, focussing on being there rather than talking about it. The Listening Room takes you to undiscovered places: means of transport, your senses.

Sessions usually consist of 3 x 20 minutes sessions with light intermission to share thoughts and reflections and then move on.

The session is led by Phil Morton: acoustic ecologist, who has delivered soundwalks and listening projects in many and varied settings.

Liverpool Soundwalks: Take me to the river: A 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

To-nights walk is a special slow walk: a path that lasts 10 minutes at a brisk pace will take an hour.

A path down Otterspool Park Path to the river taking in the sonic delights of the wood as we leave the road behind, a rare chance to slow down in the urban rush.

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