Gabriola Speaker Series – Transcripts of International Soundscape Symposium

In June 2009 I was honored to be invited to speak about the World Listening Project at the 4th International Soundscape Retreat & Symposium: Negotiating Space/Place In the Changing Soundscape, organized by the Canadian Association for Sound Ecology (CASE). Recently, CASE published transcripts of our presentations on their updated website. My talk as well as those by Eric Powell, Noora Vikman, and Barry Truax can be read online on the “Research & Publications” page.

Additional speakers at the symposium included Hildegard Westerkamp and Charlie Fox. This retreat was so inspiring for me I thought I would mention that Nadene Thériault-Copeland wrote this symposium report in the WFAE Newsletter.

World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE) Quarterly News

This week I finished my President’s Report for the year-end issue of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE) Quarterly News. Please visit to learn what this diverse community and field of artistic, scientific, and educational activity is about.

This issue includes “Misconceptions of a Silent North”, a feature article by Carmen Braden and a research report, “Thoughts on Cinematic Silences and Visual Narratives” by Dr. Isabelle Delmotte.

This online newsletter is a supplement to Soundscape: The Journal for Acoustic Ecology,  the annual print journal the WFAE publishes, and serves as a way to make available in a timely manner, news, events, opportunities, and announcements from the WFAE Board, WFAE Affiliates, and other sources of interest to those in the field of acoustic ecology.
