Event description

Description

Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology (MSAE):
Midwest Society of Acoustic Ecology is happy to announce its fourth annual series with the Chicago Park District's Night Out In the Parks program.

Break away from your daily routine. Renew your sense of place through mindfulness walks and listening in the parks.

Join your neighbors in Soundwalks led by faculty and alumni from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and fellow teaching artists for a unique outdoor experience for all ages.

Presented by Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Night Out In the Parks brings arts and culture to over 500 parks across the city, free and open for public participation.



Norman W. Long and Sara Zalek lead an exploration of resiliency through Big Marsh Park includes exercises which ready the body for listening acutely and sharing our encounters.

What is a soundwalk? A soundwalk is a guided exploration of a site using listening focused skills. We will listen to how the site sounds, as we are moving through it. Through listening we have a tool to define communities and ourselves. We also can use those tools to shape who we are and where we live. We will be listening for changes, interactions, conditions, weather, traffic, animals, insects, people, vehicles and other factors in what makes a place what it is.
