Description

Join us for a listening of Downtown Ann Arbor with a guided soundwalk. This is a unique opportunity to listen and experience our sound environment in a very different way. We are going to open our ears to every sound around us and become more aware of the soundscape that we live in. Participants will learn the concepts of the soundwalk and different ways to explore a sonic environment. Part of this program involves a walk outside so please dress accordingly for spring weather.

We will meet in the Lobby before embarking on our walk to Nichols Arboretum. 

Presented by Dr. Zeynep Özcan, a sonic artist, singer, and author. She holds a Ph.D. in Music, an M.A. in History of Architecture, and a B.A. in Philosophy and teaches at the University of Michigan. Her works have been performed and presented throughout the world in concerts, exhibitions, and conferences. Her work focuses on the design and composition of interactive virtual sound environments and the applications of animal behavior to sound art works.
