Semi-Colon

The route map of Abhiraj’s walk Semi-Colon.

Welcome to Abhiraj Dadiyan’s sound walk “Semi-Colon”.

Abhiraj nearly extinguished his own light a few years ago; now he acts as a lamplighter for others. “Death has always given me her bid, but never her hand …”

His meandering, philosophical walk invites the listener to interact with nature in imaginative and playful ways.

Trigger warning: talk of suicide  throughout but always returning to hope and light.

(Original music by Jeff Bird) 

This is the virtual and accessible version of their sound walk for those who are unable to experience it onsite in The Arboretum.
