Carbondale, Ill. -- Close your eyes. Can you identify where you are based only on the sounds you hear?

See and hear the Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC) campus in a different light by joining Dave Armstrong, host of the experimental music program Sounds Like Radio on WSIU Public Radio, for a Fall Campus Soundwalk on Saturday, October 23 at 10:30am. Participants should plan to meet Armstrong outdoors at the North End of the SIUC Student Center. The soundwalk will take participants both indoors and outdoors, and should last approximately one hour.

Soundwalks celebrate the practice of listening as it relates to the world around us, environmental awareness, and acoustic ecology. They can include audio tours, sound performances, and sound art installations.
