The Listening Path II: Disparate Times and Places uses the practice of soundwalking to connect people in disparate places in a unified act of silent respect for our natural surroundings. This project entails two short site-specific soundwalks--in Tempe, AZ, and in Grinnell, IA—and online documentation of these listening paths will juxtapose the diverse soundscapes of two iconic American landscapes: the desert and the prairie. This project blends the historically significant act of silent marches organized in the wake of tragedy with the creative research practice of soundwalking. In weaving together these themes, the project suggests that communities separated by time and place can practice collective silence to listen to the land, to demonstrate respect for our unique local environments, and to raise awareness of the extraordinary environmental challenges we face.
