This major symposium is a unique collaboration between music and fine art and brings together filmmakers, artists and composers to explore the broad domain of acoustic ecologies and soundscape’s engagement in place and the aesthetic, philosophical and political approaches of composers working in acoustic ecologies and artists working within social ecologies where the primary engagement is a form of sonic ethnography. Participants include SMFA’s Tim Meacham , Sarah Turner and Aki Pasoulas, as well as John Drever, Hildegard Westerkamp, Matt Parker, Jessie Brennan, William Locryn Finch, Ester Johnson, Gareth Evans and Francesco Bergamo.
