“How can we convince other ecologists that the pollution of our soundscape is as much of an environmental issue as the pollution of water and air-that indeed? it is the "voice" which makes the world's environmental problems audible to all those who care to listen” - Hildegard Westerkamp - 2002
Hildegard Westerkamp and her colleagues were early proponents of the idea that sound is a decisive dimension of the world, an idea that underpins contemporary thinking across social, political, artistic and scientific practices of environmental respect and concern. Join us for an informal Q&A with Hildegard herself, on live link from Canada, in conversation with musician and ecoacoustian Dr Alice Eldridge and conservation biologist Dr Mika Peck to find out more about Hildegard’s life, works and ideas and their resonance with contemporary research and practice across the art and science of soundscape.
This event is part of the Festival of Music and Ideas: Hildegard Westerkamp and Acoustic Ecologies
