Saturday March 3, 2018
Meeting at The Nunnery, 181 Bow Road, London E3 2SJ
All ages and families are welcome.
Join Bow Arts' Art for the Environment exhibition artist Matt Parker with CRiSAP researchers Kate Carr, Lisa Hall and Artur Vidal, on a sonic journey through the Olympic Park, using techniques including field-recording and meditation as a way to engage with our surroundings and environment.
The workshop will begin with a warmup and short meditation based on the Deep Listening exercises of Pauline Oliveros, led by artist Artur Vidal. Participants will then enjoy a mindful walk to the Olympic Park, taking part in the 'Walking with Crickets' exercise designed by sound artist Lisa Hall. At the park participants will use field-recorders to explore their surrounding environment, listening to pre-recorded sounds and capturing their own unique sounds to share with the group later. Once regrouped, visitors will be able to listen to sounds of fish and algae in the pond through a hydrophone. The workshop will close with a group discussion and sharing session, and a final Sonic Meditation.
