Soundwalk
  Work Details  
  Lighthouse Park Soundwalk was one in a long series of soundwalks produced as part of my radio programme Soundwalking on Vancouver Co-operative Radio between 1977 and 1979. Lighthouse Park is a forested park on the rocky shoreline outside of Vancouver, where much of the old growth forest has been preserved. The sounds in this piece consist of the parks soundscape as I walked through it and my own voice. As was done in all soundwalking programmes, the spoken voice was recorded live, on location, during the recording of the soundwalk. It is my own voice and most of the spoken words are quotes from Westcoast painter Emily Carrs writings about the sounds of forest.
