7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Listening Choir is a project that takes participants on listening walks in public spaces. Join artists Christopher Willes and Adam Kinner for an audio tour in the West Don Lands that considers how sounds intersect the histories, policies, and affects embedded within city spaces. Throughout the walk each participant carries a small cardboard loudspeaker, which plays localized sounds along the way. These sounds are choreographed (listened to) in various ways throughout the walk, evoking the immediate past, the sonic dislocation of objects and voices onto others, and the folding of histories and places on top of one another. Agreeing to drift without speaking, audiences are led into an encounter with a continually fractured soundscape that reflects on notions of public space, citizenship, and how a city changes.
