Sound walk

Thinking of heading south to Coney Island this summer? Veer a little bit east and check out Brighton Beach with your very own tour guide.

Todd Shalom leads a walk through the neighborhood that focuses as much on sound as sights, keeping with Ukranian-born Futurist Aleksei Kruchenykh's poetic ideal of Zaum, where the sounds of words are holier than the things they represent.

What does that mean? Using a variety of techniques pioneered by acoustic ecologists as well as experimental poetry exercises, you'll listen to sounds often tuned out and create your own poetry in motion.

While this is all about the aural, you're encouraged to bring a camera.

Brighton Zaum walk (starting point at Brighton Beach Avenue and Brighton 7th Street), July 10 at 6 pm, July 22 at 7 pm, July 24 at 6 pm, July 29 at 7 pm, and July 31 at 6 pm. $25.

Sounds great! I think you mean "Zaum" not "Daum"
