Ear Ear

We keep our eyes open as we walk around the city, but we tend to keep our ears closed, avoiding the whoosh of the bus and the conversations of passersby — or plugging ourselves with earphones. The New York Society for Acoustic Ecology aims to reintroduce us to those things on the sides of our heads (the ears, not the phones). The group runs “deep listening” walks that focus on the sound details of the environment, altering the way you interact with what they call the “urban psychogeography.” The event begins on the San Francisco City Hall steps, and is part of the Move>Sound Soundwave Series. Check your earwax at the door.
