Soundscapes with Stephen McCauley | Interview on World Listening Day

Soundscapes With Stephen McCauley delivers a mix of contemporary classical, electronica, ambient and acoustic music.

12 July 2017 Stephen McCauley interviewed me about World Listening Day 2017 and its theme, “Listening to the ground.” Listen online at until August 9, 2017

“Soundscapes with Stephen McCauley” is broadcast on weeknights on BBC Radio Ulster / Radio Foyle (Northern Ireland). It features various genres of popular music with a brief interlude featuring a field recording mixed in with music.

“Listening to the ground” is the theme devised by Pauline Oliveros who passed away November 24, 2016 at age 84. As a well-known woman pioneer of electronic music composition, improviser, teacher, and founder of Deep Listening, she was a friend and inspiration to many of us. Learn how to participate in World Listening Day 2017.

My interview appear approximately 10 minutes into the show. It includes a field recording I made in Bremen, Germany in 2015. Stephen invites listeners to contact him about sending your soundscape recordings to air on a future show.

About the exhibition:

This edition of radioCona:0.2425 aims at reflecting and shifting precisely this ‘unperceived’ remainder, making a leap to move from the unit of time to the notion of space, toward perceiving space, toward perceiving, capturing, and composing sounds and soundscapes, and ultimately toward creating autonomous narratives.

The radioCona:0.2425 soundart exhibition was curated by Francisco Lopez, Elena Biserna, Brane Zorman, Irena Pivka, and Jasmina Založnik. Find details about my curatorial selections here.

Framework Radio #561 the World Listening Day Episode

Among other recordings are those by eminent nature sound recordists and arts, including Dan Dugan, Jeremy Hegge, and Ricardo Huisman. Some of these recordings are on Udo Noll’s annual “audio snapshot” of the world specially made of field recordings uploaded on the at the aporee soundmap for World Listening Day. Continue reading

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.

Call In Your Favorite City Soundscapes, WBEZ

Wednesday, September 30, WBEZ’s The Morning Shift will have me on their talk show live, between 9 AM and 10 AM to answer questions about different soundscapes in Chicago, and then take calls from listeners about their favorite sounds in the city. To listen or call in tune in to 91.5 FM, or listen online at www.chicagopublicradio.org.
