Announcing: American Society for Acoustic Ecology (ASAE) Inaugural Retreat, Chicago July 9-11, 2010
The ASAE’s first retreat will be held July 9-11, 2010, hosted by theÂ Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology and theÂ World Listening Project in Chicago. This will be the first acoustic ecology conference held in Chicago, home to a thriving sonic arts community and center world for world-class architecture, located on the shore of largest group of freshwater lakes on Earth.
Among other events, we are planning discussions around “Florasonic” – a sound art installation at the Fern Room in the Lincoln Park Conservatory by Lou Mallozzi Founder and Director of theÂ Experimental Sound Studio (ESS), an afternoon soundwalk atÂ Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Douglas Center for Environmental Education, a Chicago nightlife soundwalk, and a public forum on urban sound environments addressing local, national and international sound and environment issues from multiple perspectives.
While this event has been designed to allow members of the ASAE to meet and plan for the future, members of the greater WFAE community are invited to participate.
