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.

2011 WORLD FORUM FOR ACOUSTIC ECOLOGY CONFERENCE
Crossing listening paths
IONIAN UNIVERSITY, CORFU, 3-7 OCTOBER 2011
CALL FOR SCIENTIFIC AND ARTISTIC CONTRIBUTIONS
Soundscapes are seldom simple; on the contrary, they tend to be complex sounding systems continuously changing in time, which no art or science can approach in depth on its own. Listening is the “corner stone” for the appreciation, participation and study of the sonic environment that surrounds and includes us. As Westerkamp (2002) remarks, it is the ecological balance of our planet that becomes audible “to those who care to listen.”
