"This 1981 Christian radio show (with host Michael Mills) exposes the threat of secret messages in your Rock and Roll! During the 45 minute radio show he covers a ton of artists… I’m playing 4 of my favorite segments on… Led Zeppelin, Kiss, The Beatles and Queen. Burn your records! Repent!"
Kamen Nedev & Pablo Sanz Almoguera, Binaural Walk, World Listening Day, 2010-07-18, Botanical Gardens, Madrid
This soundwalk was organized in the following way: one of the participants is picking up environmental sounds through a pair of OKM Soundman in-ear binaural microphones, while the other participant is wearing a pair of headphones, monitoring the sound environment picked up by the former. In a sense, one participant can direct, modify, and affect the acoustic orientation and perception of the other one. Halfway through the exercise, they swap roles.
The place - Madrid’s Jardín Botánico - was chosen because it is fairly to the general traffic noise of the city, while still offering the occasional quiet spot.
You are invited to participate in the first World Listening Day, which happens on Sunday, July 18, 2010. The purposes of World Listening Day are:
to celebrate the practice of listening as it relates to the world around us, environmental awareness, and acoustic ecology
to raise awareness about issues related to the World Soundscape Project, World Listening Project, World Forum for Acoustic Ecology, and individual and group efforts to creatively explore phonography
to design and implement educational initiatives which explore these concepts and practices
July 18 was chosen as the date for World Listening Day because it is the birthday of the Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer. Schafer is one of the founders of the Acoustic Ecology movement. The World Soundscape Project, which he directed, is an important organization which has inspired a lot of activity in this field, and his book Soundscape: The Tuning of the World helped to define many of the terms and background behind the acoustic ecology movement.
Here is how you can participate in World Listening Day:
· You can set aside some time when you pay attention to your soundscape.
· You can organize a listening party when people play field recordings.
Acoustic Mirror. “Street Party, La Latina, 2010-07-11”
A wild and slightly out-of-hand street party taking over the fountain of Plaza de la Cebada (La Latina, Madrid) to celebrate Spain’s victory at the World Cup Finals. One of many such raves all over the city that night; this is just the one I got caught up in.
