Full description of tours:
Good Vibrations Acoustic Cartography Tour is an interactive listening tour made to shift the way we relate to our environment through sound. The tour uses a mobile listening kit that allows participants to tap into of the least audible sounds of a city. With the use of the mobile listening kit, the participant can tune in to subtle acoustic vibrations in the environment and explore the city's cracks and surfaces. A field guide for urban listening directs users to acoustic ‘points of interest.'
