room 4 ECHOES

This project takes place at beachside Cronulla, specifically at North Cronulla beach. The idea behind this project was to highlight to the listener the soothing and tranquil properties that the beach offers as well as how it acts as a retreat from everyday mundanity. My idea was to have the listener start in a small one-way street where they would park their car. This leads to the listener opening and closing their car door as the rest of the sounds trickle in, they walk a short distance through an open carpark to a hill where a footpath/bike path leads down to the sand and water. This is where PART A ends and Part B begins. Part B entails sounds of waves in the background with footsteps walking along the footpath. These footsteps have a very crunchy rhythm due to the sand covering the footpath, but it fully immerses the listener in the sounds of the surrounding environment. PART C features a small segment of dialogue “Its peaceful here… One can escape this world…Even for a brief while”. This small amount of dialogue is all that is needed to convey to the listener the tranquil properties that the area offers as well as the original ideas behind this sound walking project. PART D is the final portion of the project and features prominent wave sounds and more footsteps as the listener moves further along the walking trail. A slight incline at the end brings us to Dunningham park where there are large pine and palm trees that are home to many birds both native and non-native. To close out the project the peaceful song of birds calling to each other high up in the pines seemed a fitting end to a tranquil soundwalk. Enjoy…
