Haliburton Soundscape Retreat
October 8-11, 2004
produced by the Canadian Association for Sound Ecology (CASE)

The Canadian Association for Sound Ecology invites you to participate
in its 2nd Haliburton Soundscape Retreat.

The weekend long retreat will take place at the Haliburton Wildlife
Reserve on the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, October 8 - 11, 2004
and will include two day-time workshops, show-and-tell times for
participants, and the opportunity to propose and discuss possible
soundscape projects small and large that can take place in the
various regions of Canada in the years ahead.

Day one: Exploring the ecology in sound ecology will include ear
cleaning exercises and soundwalks around the Haliburton site by R.
Murray Schafer and discussion sessions moderated by a group of
researchers from the University of Concordia Communications
department. In short, this will be a search for more clear ties
between the study of acoustic environments and the study of ecology
and will strive to provide participants with concrete tools for
improving the acoustic environments in their communities.

Day two: The design of acoustic environments in public spaces Led by
Australian guest Nigel Frayne, President of the World Forum for
Acoustic Ecology. Nigel will present a number of project examples
from his work as an acoustic designer that integrate the discipline
of acoustic design first formulated by the World Soundscape Project
in the 1970šs with the design of museums, zoošs, and large public
architectural projects.
