Listening walk is roughly one hour long guided listening exercise. It will be executed according to certain guidelines and conditions which will be made clear to participants.

Simo Alitalo is a Finnish sound artist, curator and teacher. His works often emerge from the basic question of acoustemology: what do we know about the world through sense of hearing, and how what we hear affects the way we understand the world.

Important recent comissions include River Aura Symphony for boat horns, sirens, church bells and a black powder cannon for Turku The European Capital of Culture 2011 and Carta de Ausculto, a 16 channel sound installation for Lincolnshire County Council & The Collection Museum, UK.
