about

"Soundwalkscapes began with a self-imposed rule: on the first Monday of every month in 2023, wherever I find myself, I will take a walk. I’ll record the walk, the environment and my improvised sung response to the sounds and situation." - Viv Corringham.

From her early Vocal Strolls broadcast on Resonance FM in London to her exploration of Urban Song Paths and her long term Shadow-walks series Viv Corringham has long been regarded as a key figure within contemporary practices of soundwalking.

For more than two decades Corringham has been experimenting with iterations of walking and vocal improvisation, exploring themes of home, memory and personal belonging. In doing so she has walked and sung alone and in company. She has led silent walks, and sounding walks, composed multi-channel walks and produced geolocated versions too.

In Soundwalkscapes Corringham again invites us to join her as she encounters her surroundings using her voice and body. In listening we move with her through five journeys in New York State, and one in London. On these walks we hear multiple, and overlapping versions of space itself. We listen to the polyphony of multiple voices, overlapping, merging, and clashing, and encounter the aural traces of other bodies and other species moving, breathing, chirruping, rustling, stamping, shuffling and banging.

We meet different versions of Corringham too. She counts, tells us of her wait for dinner, reads pollution warnings and recounts snippets of local history. And of course she sings: with birds, the ocean, horses and footfalls. She sings us the content of signs, the rhythms of construction noise, and the hiss of the waves.

Part narrated journey, part imagined fiction, Soundwalkscapes continues Corringham's expansive and profound explorations of the multiple and viscous relations between voice, place and the mobility of walking.
