In The Field – Soundscape Recording

Music Director: Lindsay Vickery
Performed by: Composition and Music Technology students

Following the publication of modern foundational texts such as Rachael Carson’s Silent Spring and Paul Ehrlich’s The Population Bomb, the late 1960s saw the ideological resurgence of the environmental movement. Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer coined the term “soundscape” to describe recordings of natural sounds made in the field and together with Hildegard Westerkamp and Barry Truax created the Vancouver World Soundscape Project, identifying field recordings as artworks in and of themselves. In this concert WAAPA Composition and Music Technology students explore recordings made 'in the field' and projected into the concert hall both with and without acoustic instruments.
