Woodford’s piece is a series called ‘what if it sounded like,’ and will demarcate part of the route between the two main hubs of soundwalk activity. It is a completely ignorable opportunity to be curious. There are 16 or so pieces in the series, and each piece asks the experiencer to consider what it would sound like if they were walking on a different material; not actually walking on it, but just if it sounded like they were. The experience is personal, and changeable with how you walk, the shoes you’re wearing, the size of the room you imagine this new floor to be in (marble in a state building, rather than an apartment living room), etc.
