Sounding Arches



Sounding Arches: A Collective AR Soundscape A collective and locative listening event in celebration of World Listening Day. Hosted by: WISE/Amanda Gutierrez/Jenn Grossman at Prospect Park, Brooklyn in 2021

This participatory event was created by placing the soundscapes at various locations around Prospect Park via the archways, waterfall, bridges via the geolocative app Echoes for a collective sounding & listening event. This event happened in conjunction with the global listening event, “Unquiet Earth” by the World Listening Project. The theme for 2021 was “The Unquiet Earth”, an invitation to reflect on and engage with the constant murmur of the Earth, sounds beyond the threshold of human hearing, to remind ourselves that we share this mysterious and awesome planet. Small, hidden, subterranean, aerial, underwater, infra- and ultrasonic sounds, inaudible to the naked ear, can bring a new, potentially hopeful, perspective on the future of the planet and humanity. Listening as activism encourages us to question our attitudes as listeners as we aim to construct a more inclusive and empathetic new world.
