Following numerous discussions in 2017 the new leadership of MSAE decided, to maintain MSAE’s steady rate of successes in engaging academic, creative and public interest in the interrelationships of sound, listening, and environment; it was necessary to reestablish the MSAE as a non-profit corporation apart from the ASAE rather than as a “chapter.”
MSAE members Dan Godston and Eric Leonardson are featured authors of articles on the 2011 World Listening Day and WFAE International Conference, “Crossing Listening Paths” held in Corfu, Greece, for the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology Newsletter.
News of the results of the American Society for Acoustic Ecology’s first-ever national symposium and Board of Directors’ retreat is spreading. Hosted by the Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology and World Listening Project, Listening for the Future helped raise awareness of acoustic ecology in Chicago, and it is hoped, positions the ASAE for a more active role in building awareness about acoustic ecology, and helping individuals who seek to actively engage and apply its ideas and practices through more effective leadership.
Eric Leonardson’s report about Listening for the Future was published in the September/October 2010 World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE) Newsletter. New York Society for Acoustic Ecology member and ASAE Treasurer, Edmund Mooney reported on Listening for the Future for the 2010 issue of Soundscape, The Journal of Acoustic Ecology.
