Hildegard Westerkamp is an accomplished sound artist and co-founder of the World Sound Project who leads sound walks for small groups. In a soundwalk, we are guided through an area without talking, only focusing on listening to the soundscape of the environment. After the walk, each participant does some free writing about the experience followed by a discussion. This can lead to projects based on the walk, including mining ideas from the text recorded after the walk and producing sound compositions by creating field recordings of the walk.
