World Listening Day Continues, News and Events

The second World Listening Day continues during this week of July 17-23, 2011. World Listening Day is a way to heighten awareness of what many take for granted, the profound experience of listening to the sounds around us. Here are a few reminders and updates.

Last year’s World Listening Day received a truly global and phenomenal response. Your participation can be as simple and private, or as complex and public as you want. Please visit our post here for suggestions and details.

If you use Twitter the #WorldListeningDay hashtag helps track and categorize relevant tweets.

One way for phonographers and field recordists to participate is by uploading field recordings to create a “Sonic Snapshot” of the world on radio aporee.org. Or, add sound files to the “World Listening Network” of the Soundscape Ecology Project at Purdue University.

The WLP website mentions only a few of the many web announcements of the performances, soundwalks, and broadcasts  happening everywhere.

The WLP’s Facebook Group helps announce these at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=28215489944. Please subscribe to the World Listening Yahoo! Group to participate in our discussion forum: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/worldlistening/join.

Regional coordinators are also tracking events in their respective their continents. You are welcome to contact Dan Godston at worldlistening@gmail.com or me for more information.

Below is a hastily gathered list of web links from some of the participants, describing their World Listening Day events.

2011 World Listening Day, July 18

The World Listening Project (WLP) and Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology (MSAE) invite you to participate in the 2011 World Listening Day on Monday, July 18.

Here are several possible ways to participate:

  • Organize a soundwalk.  What is a soundwalk? Start here
  • Organize a performance event that explores soundscape and how we can listen to our sonic environment.
  • Participate introspectively by simply paying attention to your soundscape.
  • You can facilitate an educational event that relates to acoustic ecology, field recordings, or a similar topic.

The level of participation in 2010 was amazing. We would like to see if we could double or even triple the number of participants worldwide this time. If you would like to participate in the 2011 World Listening Day, please download and fill out the 2011 World Listening Day participation form. Then email it to <worldlistening@gmail.com> with “World Listening Day” in the subject line.

Framework:afield #298 Episode 3 Collected Ear

framework – phonography / field recording; contextual and decontextualized sound activity presented by patrick mcginley

playlist #298: 2010.09.26

this edition of framework:afield, entitled collected ear is the third of four editions produced by members of the world listening project, this one in the u.s. (and not in the uk, as i mistakenly said during the show – sorry andy!) by andy armstrong.

andy says: I tried to focus the show on a somewhat diverse array of raw, relatively unprocessed recordings, calling to attention more personal/unique interpretations of field recording, regardless of fidelity. The idea was to provide you with a seamless conversation between people, objects, and places.
