B’more Soundwalk & Improv Workshop – Bonnie Jones & Suzanne Thorpe

Bonnie Jones (Baltimore) and Suzanne Thorpe (NYC) guided a workshop designed to expand listening and musical interactions. Jones and Thorpe guided attendants in listening expansion exercises based on Pauline Oliveros’ Deep Listening technique, followed by a soundwalk that enhanced their sonic relationship with their environment. During the walk, listeners evolved into players, creating a composition with their environment and themselves.
