A Soundwalk is…
• For everyone’s enjoyment and learning
• Any walk “whose main purpose is listening to the environment. It is exposing our ears to every sound around us no matter where we are.”
• Environmental sounds are not just “noise” but “information” telling us what’s happening
• Each soundwalk lasts less than one hour
A Soundscape is…
• Every sound in your landscape, wherever you are
• Always changing, no sound is ever the same
• Not always noticed and often ignored
• A natural resource
• A design made in sound

MSAE C0-Chairs and US Coordinators of the Mixage Fou 80-Second Sound Competition, Eric Leonardson and Christopher Preissing, announced the winners of its 6th edition on Saturday, January 24, 2015, during Festival •REC at Gaîté Lyrique, Paris.
About Mixage Fou: Literally translated as “Crazy Mix” this annual event invites participants from France and elsewhere to propose a new genre of “crazy” audio creation. Because here everything is permitted, we can at will transform the initial sounds, take only a few, create a narrative, painting a soundscape design, or an unlikely instrument … For the 6th edition, Mixage Fou assembled a sound bank of outstanding recordings created in partnership with the Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology in the American Midwest and its representatives in Chicago, Eric Leonardson and Christopher Preissing. Mixage Fou happens in partnership with with Phonurgia Nova, France Culture, and La Seminae du Son.
The first place winner is Bilel Aroua, a 30-year-old sound designer from Hammamet, Tunisia. Listen to his mix and the other submissions at http://www.mixagefou.com/
Artists: Julien Belon, Roland Cahen, Collective Sound Checks, One Life Remains, Vianney Aubé, Haithem Bellil and streaming from Chicago with Eric Leonardson. Presentation by Juliette Laurent and Thierry Dilger.
