On a blustery Saturday morning in late October, around 30 walkers joined sound-artist DinahD for a spaced and silent 4-km Soundwalk at Gabriola’s north end.
They focussed on the sounds in their environment and pondered their human role in this place. They heard the swoosh of raven wings, rain dripping onto salal leaves, rustles underfoot, and many other beauties. They learned how to audio-map their environment and document the adventure. Afterwards they gathered over hot chocolate (thanks Clever Trevor!) to discuss their findings and insights, and went home with a broader sense of their environment, a keepsake journal, and many good memories. Thanks for a great idea, DinahD!
