Study Day: R. Murray Schafer’s Ecologies of Music and Sound Re-examined

September 30, 2022 at 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM

Location:Online via Zoom
Cost:Free
Audience:Anyone

R. Murray Schafer’s Ecologies of Music and Sound Re-examined takes a critical look at three strands of his ideas–music education, acoustic ecology, and environmental music performance–in the context of 21st-century society. An eclectic list of presenters includes leading scholars and artists–both those who worked directly with/on Schafer, and those who have written across the grain of his ideas. Also included are scholars who don’t connect their work with Schafer, but who are innovating in areas of education, acoustic ecology, and environmental performance. The format is a combination of stimulating 10-minute presentations and discussion.
