We will be combining a lecture by Dr. Bryan Pijanowski, one of todayâ€™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 worldâ€™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!
