Wednesday, April 24th
Eesti Rahva Muuseum, Tartu
Spring is finally springing, so this month we take helikoosolek:tartu out of the museum and into the streets for a series of autonomous city soundwalks led by our regular host Patrick McGinley. We will explore the soundscapes of the city of Tartu, focusing on both the recognition of those environments and the surprises therein when approaching them with ears open are eyes closed.
Participants will explore the city in pairs, one with eyes open and one with eyes closed, each working their way through 4 directives: leading with eyes open, following with eyes open, leading with eyes closed, and following with eyes closed. The walk will last approximately an hour, after which we will gather again at ERM to discuss our observations.
Please come on time so we can begin our walk promptly at 18:00. Please wear comfortable soft-soled shoes, and dress appropriately for the weather. The forecast is good, but we will have an alternative indoor program in case of rain.
helikoosolek:tartu is a regular gathering for the exploration of sound in all forms. The meetings comprise presentations, concerts, workshops, discussions, and field trips pertaining to sound and its consideration in art, music, architecture, ecology, philosophy, social and cultural interaction, and any other context that presents itself. Participants are encouraged to propose activities or discussions on topics of their interest, or to present projects of their own for feedback. Sessions take place on the last Wednesday of each month, from 18:00-20:00 at the Eesti Rahva Muuseum.
helikoosolek:tartu is organised by MoKS and supported by Eesti Rahva Muuseum, Tartu Linnavalitsus, and Eesti Kultuurkapital.
