What do you hear when you listen to the Earth? The World Listening Project invites you to participate in “Listen to the Earth,” a global event that happens during Earth Week. Listen to the Earth activities include listening to one’s soundscape, field recordings, soundwalks, performances, other practices that pertain to acoustic ecology, and more. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, with ‘Listen to the Earth’ in the subject line if you would like to participate.
The World Listening Project (WLP) is a not-for-profit organization devoted to understanding the world and its natural environment, societies and cultures through the practices of listening and field recording. WLP was founded in 2008 and is supported by the Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology, a membership organization and regional chapter of the American Society for Acoustic Ecology, affiliated with the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology. WLP maintains a website and online forum about its artistic and educational activities. These include the use of radio and web-based technologies, conducting public workshops, forums, and lectures, as well as participating in exhibitions, symposiums, and festivals. www.worldlisteningproject.org
