As part of Science and Engineering Day at Southampton Science and Engineering Festival (SOTSEF) 2017 the Listening Across Disciplines project will host a Science Soundwalk (a soundwalk is a walk with a focus on listening to the environment to experience it in a new way) led by Maria Papadomanolaki, a sound artist and experienced soundwalker. We will walk as a group around the festival to explore its different sounds and to experience how a focus on listening can enhance our experience of this science event.
You will need suitable footwear for walking indoors and out. If the weather is bad our route will be mainly indoors, but we may need to go outside to move between buildings so you will want a suitable coat and/or umbrella.
To attend, please register for a Free ticket to the Science and Engineering Day, then meet in the Foyer of Building 13 on the Highfield campus of University of Southampton. There will be two sound walks, starting at 12:00 and 14:00.
