Introduction

When was the last time you went somewhere just to hear the sounds?

The atmosphere of a place is created by sounds as well as vision.
Sounds are not usually static but come as events in time.
How often do you pay attention to this?
How does this affect our response to place?

Whether experienced as a private meditation or as collective silence SOUNDWALKS will refresh your ears and reset your sensual awareness of where you live, work or visit.

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.

The Listening Room: Sonic Gaze is facilitated by Phil Morton & Robin Hartwell

    well folks, we are approaching, but not quite yet arrived at, the end of our 2021 programming - we have one more edition of framework:afield next week (produced in the u.s. by ben link collins) and then one final regular edition the week after, and then we'll be taking our much-needed holiday break, taking a few weeks to refresh our ears (and heat our studio - it's a chilly -18C here this morning!) and coming back to you with new sounds on january 9th. as always, there are plenty of shows in the archive to keep you tided over - we've sure you haven't heard all 639 of them - until we come back. but this week you can enjoy these great sounds, from a new discovery for us, the canadian sound artist dang., a new work from ian wellman, another wonderful release from the forms of minutiae label, and a glorious single-take recording at a frozen lake not too far from here in finland by till bovermann aka lfsaw. and we started it all off with a framework introduction recorded for us by regular contributor william denton.

    we've been a fan of éric la casa's work since he was half of syllyk back in the early 90's - it's as if his technique and aesthetic have developed along the same trajectories as our ears, and once again he doesn't fail to impress with his new everyday unknown series of abstract sound constructions. they blended nicely with the geographic captures of nikki sheth (south africa), jeff gburek (bulgaria) and paula schopf (chilé). we topped it all off with sounds from italy, canada, russia and czechia from the aporee soundmaps, and an introduction full of hailstones from northern ireland.

    this edition, entitled magneto mori: vienna, has been produced in scotland by regular contributor mark vernon. for more information see https://meagreresource.com. producer's notes: Magneto Mori: Vienna is a fragmented sound portrait of the city constructed from found sounds, buried tapes and field recordings. In this de-composition sounds from Vienna’s past and present are conjoined in a stew of semi-degraded audiotape. [...]

    old and new(er) friends in this weeks edition - i first met both howard stelzer and jeff surak back in the early 00's, while jilliene sellner (who put together the harbour me release) has been a regular contributor over these last few years, and anna xambó (who put me on to the dirty dialogues release) first got in touch a few weeks ago. their sounds sound like old friends, though; we hope you'll enjoy listening to this mix as much as we enjoyed making it.
