Chicago, IL 60614

Chicago Wildsounds writes:

We will be combining a lecture by Dr. Bryan Pijanowski, one of today’s leading acoustic ecologists, and sound performances by Zach Moore and Owen Davis.Dr. Bryan Pijanowski is the Director and Professor of the Human-Environment Modeling and Analysis Laboratory (HEMA) in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Purdue University. His lab combines ecology, engineering, social science and the arts to its research which is the inspiration behind Chicago Wildsounds. Dr. Pijanowski has traveled to some of the world’s wildest places to record, study and conserve their sounds. In this lecture, Dr. Pijanowski will describe his work in the field of acoustic ecology, human-environment modeling and the unique places it has taken him.

Zach Moore and Owen Davis are both composition students in the School of Music at DePaul University. Moore and Davis have incorporated CWS field recordings into original works to be premiered at the event. In addition to their compositions, there will be a sound improv session to bring the night to a close.

This will also be a great opportunity to check out the collaborative sound installation between CWS and artists Dolores Wilbur and Victoria Deloria, along with the other environmental related art exhibited in “Rooted in Soil”.

This is a lecture and performance you will not want to miss!

Invitation to Improvisation: Water Music

This musical series responds to and highlights Chicago’s location next to water. From compositions and scores involving multiple performers to solo performances, this series highlights music that reflects, reacts to, or personifies the sounds of water. Essential to existence yet abundant, water is both profoundly symbolic and an elemental material. The performances – sited near water – draw metaphorically and/or actually from the sounds of water.

World Listening Project – framework:afield – Episode 3

World Listening Project’s framework:afield mini-series aired on September 26. “Collected Ear” was curated by Chicago artist Andy Armstrong. This episode focuses on “…a somewhat diverse array of raw, relatively unprocessed recordings, calling to attention more personal/unique interpretations of field recording, regardless of fidelity…to provide you with a seamless conversation between people, objects, and places.”
