Soundwalk with Tyler Kinnear

PAST: Wednesday, October 22, 2014, 2-3:30 pm


Join Tyler Kinnear for a guided Soundwalk on the campus of the University of British Columbia. During this excursion we will give our ears priority, paying attention to the sounds around us as well as to our own listening. In what ways do we interpret the sonic environment? In what ways do we contribute to its composition?

This event will happen rain or shine, so please wear appropriate footwear and clothing.

Tyler Kinnear is a PhD candidate in Musicology at the University of British Columbia. His research explores the intersections of music and nature in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Soundwalk is a collaboration of the Belkin Art Gallery and School of Music at UBC, and is part of the Vancouver New Music Festival’s Alternative Energies – Sound and Sustainability. Taking place throughout September and October 2014, Alternative Energies offers a series of events that explore the intersection of art and sustainability presented by arts, educational and community organizations in Vancouver.
