“Sounds Like Radio” Fall Campus Soundwalk, Oct. 23rd

October 17, 2012

WSIU Public Radio, a public media station of Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and the Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology invite the general public to a Fall Soundwalk on the SIU campus on Tuesday, October 23 beginning at 12pm. The soundwalk will start at the rock wall located at the north entrance of the SIU Student Center and should last approximately one hour. A rain date for the event has been set for Tuesday, October 30 at noon.

Dave Armstrong, host of the WSIU Radio program Sounds Like Radio, will lead the soundwalk, which is being presented in association with the SIU College of Mass Communication & Media Arts’ Imagined Geographies Initiative.

“Soundwalks celebrate the practice of listening as it relates to the world around us,” says Armstrong. “I plan to introduce listening exercises to deepen the soundwalk experience for participants and to acclimate them to different ways of hearing their surroundings.”
Sounds Like Radio is a two-hour program on WSIU Radio that brings a unique perspective to everyday sounds. It features experimental music, avant-garde works, sound art, and field recordings. Sounds Like Radio airs Sundays from 3-5am and again from 10pm-12am. Comments, suggestions, and questions should be directed to soundslikeradio@wsiu.org.

Liveblogging! “Sounds Like Radio,” 10/17/10

October 17, 2010

I’m listening in to the broadcast tonight– still trying to improve my vocal work! I hope you enjoy today’s episode of “Sounds Like Radio” on WSIU, and also that you’ll let a friend know about the show as well. We’re doing our pledge drive right now, so if you’re as excited as I am about getting to hear experimental music on public radio, be sure to give them a call at 1-800-745-9748. You can also donate online. Be sure to tell the operator that you enjoy “Sounds Like Radio,” or leave a comment in the online pledge area to that effect. Thanks!

Also, on the 23rd of this month, how about joining me for a soundwalk on the SIUC campus? We’ll start at 10:30 a.m., outside on the North end of the Student Center. It’s free, and a lot of fun– I hope you can make it!

Wow, very strange. I just heard my spot about pledge drive, which I announce. Unfortunately, it was run in the break during my show. So I essentially said that we were going to break, and then was immediately on again. A little discombobulating, haha.
