On Monday, March 26 I have the honor of being a guest of Iowa State University’s Master of Design in Sustainable Environments, where I will give my talk on Advances in Eco-Sensing and the Soundscape.
This talk discusses several ongoing projects that intersected in 2015, under the name “Eco-Sensing and the Soundscape,” a studio course taught in the fall of 2015 at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. By connecting concepts and practices of acoustic ecology with the hacking aesthetic of art and technology the course sought to open up possibilities for transdisciplinary collaborations, offer new understandings of our environments and our boundaries, locations, and our roles within them as artists, designers, and listeners. New collaborations and new contexts have developed that extend beyond the classroom and studio, to actively engage public awareness in the ecologies of sound, listening, and environment.
Be it for live electronic music or field research, making handheld sensors are core methods and devices for learning about sound maps and embodied sensing through an introduction to “ear cleaning,” soundwalking and hands-on hydrophone making.
One of the goals of this talk and workshop is to draw people from ISU’s music school, design college, and engineering program.
I organized a virtual panel discussion on Advances in Eco-Sensing and the Soundscape for Balance-Unbalance 2017 in Plymouth, Chicago, Brisbane, and New York, archived on video here.

I hope the start of 2018 has felt full of potential for you.
It is my pleasure to announce a performance featuring Hamburg-based trumpet player Birgit Ulher. Please join Birgit and myself with vocal artist, Carol Genetti at Elastic Arts. Katherine Young (bassoon, electronics) and Birgit will open with a duo set.

The start of this new year brings a special time for peaceful reflection, planning, performing, production, and fellowship during my 25-day residency at Ragdale. This is my third residency here since 2015. Ragdale is an interdisciplinary artists’ community established in 1976 in Lake Forest, Illinois by poet Alice Judson Hayes, the granddaughter of architect Howard Van Doren Shaw.
It is my great pleasure to announce that the latest edition of Soundscape: The Journal of Acoustic Ecology has been released by the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology.
Soundscape, Volume 16 is the second of a pair of issues sharing the theme of guest editor Jay Needham, “Sounds Emergent: Diverse Ecologies.” This edition celebrates the life and work of Pauline Oliveros with articles by Edward Shanken, Yolande Harris, Seth Cluett, Tomie Hahn and Stephan Moore. Also included are reviews and commentary by Honna Veerkamp, Maile Colbert and Heather Contant and an extended article on augmented reality audio by Leah Barclay. My own report touches on various WFAE activities throughout 2017 including affiliate news and endorsed events and conferences. Read more on our announcement and download the PDF.

Conversation with Sound and Eco Design Students
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.
