Listening to architectural space : the sound of the built environment.William Brown Street
A ‘soundwalk’ is a practice: it is walking without talking, focusing on the sound around, focusing on the present moment. In a `Sonic Gaze` session the participants are static, though the sounds could be mobile. Talking might come later.
