July 18 is World Listening Day. Less than 10 days away!
This year’s theme is ‘Future Listening’ created by Filipino sound artist @teresaBARROZO
World Listening Day is hosted by the World Listening Project. Around the world contests and walks focus attention on improving listening skills and conserving critical soundscapes. July 18 was chosen because it is the birthday of the Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer, one of the founders of the Acoustic Ecology movement.
We look forward to enjoying and sharing the work of sound artists around the globe and thank the World Listening Project for leading this valuable tribute to the art of listening. Please let us know where to find the livestreaming and archived soundscapes that transport us into the natural and cultural worlds.
The sound of 2018 is different from a decade ago and a decade in the future.
- Record a soundscape
- Retweet a #wld2018 post
- Which sounds do you wish to retain? Which sounds do you wish to never hear again?
- What might the future sound like?
Phantom Power: Data streams with Leah Barclay and Teresa Barrozo – On July 18th this year, Teresa Barrozo‘s question — What might the Future sound like? — will be opened to global participation. We bring news of World Listening Day, and speak with Teresa about her intervention. We also hear of data archival developments in acoustic ecology. And we speak with Leah Barclay, the editor of Soundscape: The Journal of Acoustic Ecology, about her Biosphere Soundscapes project and some of the challenges of developing accessible apps for mobile platforms.
