With the 30th anniversary of the founding of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology, the WFAE holds its first intern'l conference on acoustic ecology in the USA. This gathering featuring Amanda Gutiérrez, Claude Schryer & David Haskell considers how we can collectively & differently learn from the past, to imagine new futures based on a diversity of listening practices and acoustic relationships in our worlds.
Critical directions in sound studies have addressed the legacies of the World Soundscape Project and acoustic ecology directly: this is a chance, as a community, to reflect, look back, and re-imagine the core values of the sonic / vibro-acoustic field, its central approaches, methods, and key theorists of past, present, and future.
With acoustic ecology and soundscape studies at the core -- there's much to give and receive -- at this moment of pivotal sensorium-environmental awakening.
Among the appeals of this conference are Soundscape Field Station artist resident Jacek Smolicki and the related programming of the Soundscape Fest -- to immerse participants in a Soundwalk and Sound Art Installation --especially crafted to share a vision & soundscape of community engagement.
Located near the Canaveral National Seashore, in the unceded lands of the Seminole people, Atlantic Center for the Arts offers access to the beauty of this wild coastal habitat. Mangroves, manatees, and Spanish moss are here in one of the region’s last remaining areas protected from development.
