Alô, alô, sonoplastas brasileiros!!
O inglês Steven Brown (http://www.listenhear.co.uk), head do grupo de trabalho de sonoplastia da OISTAT e curador de sonoplastia da Quadrienal de Praga 2011, enviou um e-mail avisando sobre o primeiro DIA DA ESCUTA, neste domingo, 18 de julho de 2010.
O grupo de sonoplastia da OISTAT não poderia ficar de fora e celebrou o evento com uma contribuição. Vários integrantes o grupo enviaram algum som da sua semana em uma pequena amostragem de 60 segundos. Disponível no link http://www.theatresound.org/world_listening_day.htm
The first World Listening Day – July 18th 2010 – http://www.worldlisteningproject.org/?p=667
The purposes of World Listening Day are:
to celebrate the practice of listening as it relates to the world around us, environmental awareness, and acoustic ecology;
to raise awareness about issues related to the World Soundscape Project, World Forum for Acoustic Ecology, World Listening Project, and individual and group efforts to creatively explore phonography;
and to design and implement educational initiatives which explore these concepts and practices.
World Listening Day is being organized by the World Listening Project (WLP), in partnership with the Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology (MSAE). July 18 was chosen as the date for World Listening Day because it is the birthday of the Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer, who is one of the founders of the Acoustic Ecology movement.
The World Soundscape Project, which Schafer directed, is an important organization which has inspired a lot of activity in this field, and his book The Soundscape: Our Sonic Environment and the Tuning of the World helped to define many of the terms and background behind the acoustic ecology movement.
O brasileiro Lucio Haeser, do http://radioesfera.wordpress.com/ está participando do evento.
