DAWN//DUSK - OCCUPY SILENCE

Toni Bruce

Venues

Venue 47 - The Old Barn, Pollock Country Park, 82 Dumbreck Road, G41 4SN (Directions for The Old Barn: www.theoldbarn-glasgow.co.uk/contact.html)

Soundwalks are used to elevate an environment's sound over the visual landscape. This soundwalk will seek to explore this simple question - do we fear silence? For the most part it has become increasingly easy for individuals to manipulate their everyday soundscape. This can be easily achieved through the use of personal music devices,of ever-connected smartphones, of binge-watching your favourite series on netflix, to name a few! This walk will aim to bring people closer to understanding the power of silence.  The walk will seek to question a designated 'quiet area' in Glasgow (Pollok Park), explore this area and consequently try to harness its subtle power. When the absence or prescence of sound is isolated and focused upon, and shared within a group, its power can be profoundly felt. These are special kinds of silences, and we must seek out any pocket of silence we can find in an increasingly noisy world.

The soundwalk will be much more than simply taking a walk in the park. If you have ever attended a public event where a silence has been held (ie rememberance day) you will understand that this is a special kind of silence. The walk will aim to explore the modern malaise of oversaturation through practice. Through trying to be more honest and open to the world immediately around us, and by joining with people who hold the same curiousity in their minds. To tidy away the distractions of our hypermodern existence and simply be. 

Come with an open mind and a willingness to explore and interpret the subtle power of the quiet, of the silence!

Order (RE:)observed is a participative public artwork that explores the choreography of the city and our relation to it as wanderers, workers, explorers, and casual walkers.  In two separate but linked events, artists Nikki Kane and Adam J Scarborough will lead a route through the city of Glasgow: from west to east and then east to west; using ‘the route’ as a structure and material for an enhanced exploration of the streets around us.

 

Join us as we open up the constructed cycles of the city and find moments of beauty and connection within the performance of our surroundings.

Each walk will last approximately 2 hours. Please dress for the weather. Participants are also encouraged to bring as many forms of documentation materials as they wish: such as cameras, sound recorders, pens, paper, chalk.
