This year’s theme is ‘Future Listening’ created by Filipino sound artist @teresaBARROZO
World Listening Day is hosted by the World Listening Project. Contests and walks around the world 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 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. We look forward to sharing the work of sound artists around the globe and thank the World Listening Project for leading this valuable tribute.
