The Musical Ecologies series continues April 16th thru 18th with a three-part festival of Acoustic Ecology co-curated by composers Andrea Williams and Dan Joseph. Coined by the Canadian composer and theorist R. Murray Schafer in the 1970s, the term acoustic ecology refers to the study of the effects of the acoustic environment on those creatures living within it. An outgrowth of the World Soundscape Project conducted by Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC in the late 1960s and early 70s, acoustic ecology has grown through the ensuing decades into an academic and artistic discipline, capturing the interest of composers, sound artists, and scientists throughout the world. Taking place over three days, the Brooklyn Acoustic Ecology Festival offers an opportunity to explore our understanding of sound in our environment through the work of a group of selected artists who will present performances, talks, and soundwalks in and around the Old Stone House in Park Slope.

We will try to accommodate all works submitted, but we are limited to two hours. Accepted works will be announced by April 1st. Please submit a one or two sentence description of your sound work.
