Ragdale Residency | January 2016

From January 4 through 29, I am at Ragdale for my second artist’s residency. I posted on this blog about my wonderful experience and productive time spent here in 2015.

Here is my invitation to a soundwalk I will lead on January 24, at Ragdale for Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology members and fellow Ragdale residents, staff, board members, and donors.

Below is a photo album of scenes at Ragdale. I hope soon to add sound recordings.

How to soundwalk (Part Two) for Land Lines

Part two of my “How-to” primer for Land Lines, the Nature Conservancy of Canada blog, offers some practical considerations and inspiration in doing your own soundwalks. Online resources are included. My hope is that anyone who is even a bit interested will not only read it, but do it. That’s the only way to begin to know what a soundwalk is and why it’s helpful.

In this two-part piece for Land Lines, the Nature Conservancy of Canada blog, I provide a “How to” primer with resources, personal experiences, and suggested techniques.

As an ecological practice, soundwalking can be an entertainment or a method of inquiry, a call to action or a meditation. Soundwalks can play multiple roles all at once or shift intents from moment to moment.

Part Two will post on October 28, 2015.

Pullman Soundwalk, WBEZ City Sounds

As a prelude to the MSAE’s Pullman National Monument soundwalk, at 10:30 AM Saturday, October 3, here’s the recording of my appearance on WBEZ’s “The Morning Shift.” I talk with Tony Sarabia about ambient sounds in the city and the value of listening.

Having a few minutes to discuss a so fundamentally important part of everyday experience really helps to raise critical awareness about our soundscapes and life in the city. I thank the show’s producer, Dan Tucker for taking note and using Chicago public radio to help us gain a sense of what acoustic ecology does.
