Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology and The World Listening Project are seeking submissions for The Empty Spaces, a compilation release on the Wandering Ear net.label. Launched in 2006, Wandering Ear is dedicated to releasing field recording-oriented audio from around the world. The concept is deliberately open-ended to accommodate the unexpected. Co-curated by Nathan Larson and Mike Hallenbeck, all Wandering Ear releases are available for free download by individual track or as a zipped file containing all tracks under a Creative Commons License for personal use.

THE EMPTY SPACE

.

Empty spaces, destitute of activity,

Once inhabited, teaming with life, leaving traces…

in the earth, on their walls, in the air

Empty places… abandoned or never inhabited

a sonic odor, once removed

remains etched in the subconscious

.
