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 <email@example.com> with “World Listening Day” in the subject line.
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.
