Our panel discussion for the Balance-Unbalance 2017 “Sense of Place” conference in Plymouth, UK streams on YouTube Live. Advances in Eco-Sensing and the Soundscape: A Virtual Panel takes place at 2:20-3:20pm BST (8:20-9:20am US CDT), on Wednesday, August 23.
I’ll be leading a panel with Lindsey French and Linda Keane at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, sound and media artists Leah Barclay in Brisbane, Amanda Gutiérrez in Mexico City. Grant Smith of SoundCamp will facilitate on-site in Plymouth, UK.
Their individual and combined efforts engage and activate students and public communities in design of urban soundscapes using virtual environments, social codes of immigrant communities, river listening, soundwalking, plant communication, art-science collaborations, and new media.
Tuesday, June 7, I am giving a presentation in the Ecoacoustics Congress 2016, held June 6-8 at Michigan State University in East Lansing.
Ecoacoustics Congress 2016 will bring together scientists from around the world for an in-depth conference exploring new frontiers of ecoacoustics research and development. Sessions at this year’s conference will feature:
- Ecoacoustics Environment
- Fresh Water
- Ecoacoustics Impact
- Community/Species Impact
Titled after the course I co-taught with Lindsey French in fall 2015, “Eco-Sensing and the Soundscape” serves as a teaching resource blending ideas and practices of acoustic ecology with the DIY hacking aesthetic of new media in a post-secondary art school curriculum.
Our course blog provides a curricular resource for you to explore and implement, and an outlet for our students’ work.
4:30 PM Monday, May 9, I am giving a presentation titled “Eco-Sensing and the Soundscape” in the Balance-Unbalance 2016: Data Science + Eco Action conference.
The 5th edition of Balance-Unbalance (BunB 2016) will be held May 9–11, 2016 in Manizales, Colombia. BunB 2016 is designed “…to use art as a catalyst to explore intersections between nature, science, technology and society in an era of both unprecedented ecological threats and transdisciplinary possibilities.” Continue reading
On March 25–26, I am participating in the pre-conference acoustic ecology workshop and overnight field trip to the Beaver Creek Biosphere Reserve, organized by the American Society for Acoustic Ecology. On March 27–29, I am honored to lead and present these panels and papers in the spectacular conference, Balance-Unbalance 2015: Water, Climate and Place, Reimagining Environments at Arizona State University (ASU).
Eco-sensing in Higher Education Curriculum
March 28, 2015 • 3:30pm Leonardson and Andrea Polli will lead a panel entitled Eco-sensing in Higher Education Curriculum. A conversation between an international group of academic practitioners and artists about the design and delivery of interdisciplinary curriculum in the arts, engineering and architecture that engages university students with listening and other forms of environmental sensing to promote creative ways to address ecological problems. Panelists will present examples and experiences using listening, field recording, sensors, data gathering, and other ways of sensing ecosystems. Panel participants are Linda Keane (AIADO, SAIC), Leah Barclay (UNESCO Biosphere Soundscapes project), Christopher Preissing (Composer), Lindsey French (Artist, SAIC), Meredith Hoy (Art History and Theory, ASU).
