COVID lockdown created an ‘unreal’ calm across global cities – intrusive aircraft noise was silenced, the hum of road traffic and screech of rail diminished. Humans began to appreciate the sounds of nature that surrounds them. A calm sought by many living in towns and cities was created by a global crisis. As lockdown eases, and life returns to ‘normal’ how can we seek the tranquility that we all shared?
Ximena Alarcon a ‘deep listening’ practitioner and sound artist invites you to a discussion with landscape architect, Usue Ruiz Aruna, composer and digital media artist, Ron Herrema and Richard Bentley of consultancy Small Silence. Drawing from three different perspectives they will reveal how we can be successful in seeking tranquility.
