I was one of the founders of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE) at the Banff Centre’s Tuning of the World Conference in 1993 (TOTW1993) and was honoured to participate as a facilitator at The Global Composition 2018 (TGC2018). I mentioned at the opening event of TGC2018 that it was the interdisciplinary and exploratory nature of acoustic ecology that motivated me to help create the WFAE. Much has been accomplished by the WFAE over 25 years – thanks are in order - but what comes next? One of the goals of TGC2018 was to take stock of these 25 years of activity and to lay groundwork for future generations...
Some personal highlights and thoughts from TGC2018:
