Soundwalk – outdoor service at the church – with Ryan Frizzell

A Sound Walk is…

a listening exercise that helps us become aware
of our immediate acoustic environment.
It is also about the aesthetic pleasures of listening.
Listening to sounds we might otherwise have missed;
listening to the rhythm of sounds;
listening for the unique ‘voice’ of a city.

It’s about enjoying the sensual beauty and sheer surprise
of sound…

– From hildegardwesterkamp.ca

We will take a 20 minute easy walk in North Hatley to experience the sounds around us. In the event of rain, we will go inside the church for a sharing service.
