Carbondale, Ill. – What does a college campus sound like? When you close your eyes, can you identify your location based on the different sounds you hear?

Discover the unique sounds that surround you by joining Dave Armstrong, host of Sounds Like Radio, an experimental music program on WSIU Public Radio, a public media arm of Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC), for a soundwalk of campus this Sunday, July 18 from 10:30-11:30am. Participants should meet Armstrong outdoors at the north end of the SIUC Student Center.

The soundwalk coincides with World Listening Day, a special day set aside by the World Listening Project designed to celebrate the practice of listening as it relates to the world around us, environmental awareness, and acoustic ecology. World Listening Day is also meant to raise awareness about the World Soundscape and Listening Projects, the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology, and group efforts to explore phonography, as well as to design and implement educational initiatives that explore these concepts and practices.

Sounds Like Radio, which airs Sundays from 3-5am on WSIU 91.9 FM, 91.9 HD, 90.3 FM, and 88.9 FM, is a two-hour program for active listeners that brings a unique perspective to the sounds around us. The program features experimental music, avant-garde works, sound art, and field recordings.
