A soundwalk is an excursion whose main purpose is listening to the environment.[1] The term was first used by members of the World Soundscape Project under the leadership of composer R. Murray Schafer in Vancouver in the 1970s.

The sound walk is also used as artistic medium by visual artists and documentary makers. One of the best known examples is Janet Cardiff.
