Canadian Association for Sound Ecology (CASE) AGM
CASE had its Annual General Meeting on Jan 6, 2021 and said farewell to Eric Powell and Tyler Kinnear, thanking them for their outstanding contributions to CASE. CASE welcomes Milena Dromeva and Wendalyn Bartley as new board members and looks forward to growth in the new year.
“Listening in the Time of COVID”
The CASE project, “Listening in the Time of COVID”, congratulates the three winning contest submissions: First Place - PrOphecy Sun, Spiraled Mothering; Second Place - Shumalia Hemani, Perils of Heavy Rainfall; and, Third Place - Diego Bermudez Chamberland, Ma Fenêtre à Moi.
This was a Canada-wide call for original soundworks related to the current pandemic; the three selected soundscape compositions can be listened to at Listening in the Time of COVID.
New Adventures in Sound Art
New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) are planning two online participatory events in 2021 that involve public engagement across Canada and internationally in soundscape recording and discussion. The first will have online meetup workshops culminating in livestreams of daybreak soundscapes for the Reveil broadcast on May 1 organized by Sound Camp and the Acoustic Commons groups in the UK. The second will also have meetup workshops leading to a soundscape broadcast on World Listening Day (July 18). More details to follow at https://www.naisa.ca/
