12 stations World Listening Day 2011in Limerick City.

Softday are inviting people to participate in a soundwalk in Limerick City, to mark World Listening Day on Monday 18th July 2011. If possible, bring your portable/mobile sound recording device (e.g. mobile phone, MP3 recorder, etc), if not just bring yourself!

The issue Softday are hoping to explore is the subjective and objective aspects of listening to our everyday environments and soundscapes. In addition to the soundwalk, listening and recording, the Grand Finale will be a performance, by all the participants, using the collected sounds as an ensemble. If, for any reason, you didn’t bring a recorder then you can vocalize the recollection of your sonic experience. To participate, be at The Locke Bar on Georges Quay Limerick at 12:00 noon on Monday the 18th of July 2011!

The event will be recorded and documented on the Softday web site.
