San Francisco, California

Led by the New York Society of Acoustic Ecology, deep listening journeys focus on sounds of a particular environment while moving through it. It's a way to experience a new or an already familiar place with an entirely new perspective, often with sense of amazement about being able to hear the fine details in life just by walking and focusing on listening.

Soundwave is a multi-venue and multi-date festival happening over the span of two months every two years in San Francisco USA. Each season investigates a new idea in sound and invites diverse multidisciplinary artists and musicians to explore the season's theme in new and innovative directions. It challenges and inspires artists and audiences to look deeper into the sound medium and discover new connections to sound making and the sound experience. In its third season, the series has completed two successful seasons, Season 2's SURROUND>SOUND in 2006 and Season 1's FREE>SOUND in 2004. The project was recently named 'Best Sound Sculptures – Future Classic' by San Francisco Magazine's BEST of 2007 issue.
