Listening Walk – Mt Beauty, Victoria, Australia


While in residence at the Bogong Centre for Sound Culture in Australia, I led a Listening Walk in the Mt Beauty area. The Listening Walk began with a short introduction to the core ideas of acoustic ecology and active listening. Participants were then led on a walk that allowed for the investigation, appreciation and critical analysis of the surrounding soundscape. During the walk, participants were invited to experience the modified headphones, part of the larger Listening Instruments project. The walk concluded with a discussion in which participants shared and reflected on their experience.
