Event description
In this workshop, Martyna Poznańska invites you to focus on your perception of the world and how it can be modified through attentiveness.

About this Event

The workshop has 10 spots available on a first-come-first-serve basis. The rest will be offered a place in case of any cancellations.

In this listening workshop I invite you to focus on your perceptual notion of the world and how it can be modified through attentiveness. Our work will be based on the contemplation of the sonic environment, a pleasure of being present and weaving creative entanglements with the surroundings, while taking a multisensorial, active and corporeal path.

During the workshops I would like to offer sets of exercises to play with our perception, enhancing some senses over the others, searching for child like curiosity and openness toward the environment and ways to become closer with it.

You are invited to embark on a listening journey through your own familiar surroundings starting from the intimate environment such as your own body, your bedroom, home, etc. toward the outside neighborhood and places you might be intuitively attracted to.

This includes the practice of active listening and field recording in tangent to working with various visual tools such as video, installation, her own body, and drawing, as well as listening workshops and soundwalks. Responding to the climate crises related issues, she has been exploring the symbiotic relations between human and non-human beings, the endless entanglements between us and how to acknowledge their intrinsic character.

Walking Festival of Sound is a transdisciplinary event exploring the role of walking through and listening to our everyday surroundings. It combines a number of free and public events including walking performances and walking seminars. Walking Festival of Sound facilitates a meeting point for an international network of practitioners and researchers interested in sound and walking. Through diverse events we explore how walking and listening practices can augment and challenge the way we perceive, navigate through, and care for our shared environments.

The Walking Festival of Sound 2021 is kindly funded by the European Cultural Foundation's Culture of Solidarity Fund.

The program of events is organised and curated by Jacek Smolicki and Tim Shaw.

The workshop will take place on Zoom, a Zoom link will be sent to participants shortly before the beginning of the event.
