Botanical Garden Soundwalk
Thursday, April 22 through summer 2021
State Botanical Garden of Georgia
The Botanical Garden Soundwalk is a collection of soundscapes created by members of the UGA Student Composers Association in partnership with the UGA State Botanical Garden. Student and faculty composers engaged with Cora Keber, State Botanical Garden Director of Education, to learn about and respond to different environments within the Garden. Playback of soundscapes on the ECHOES app is prompted by the geolocation positioning of the listener within the grounds of the Garden. Visitors can craft their own interactive soundtrack by virtue of the duration and order of regions they encounter. The Botanical Garden Soundwalk begins at the Garden Visitor Center and continues in all other gardens and collections. Supported in part by an Idea Lab Mini Grant.
