Master of Design in Sustainable Environments, Iowa State University

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.

Workshop: Listening Above and Below; Eco-Sensing DIY

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.
