I thought some of you might be interested in attending this upcoming retreat
produced by the Canadian Association for Sound Ecology.



Haliburton Soundscape Retreat
October 8-11, 2004
including R. Murray Schafer & Nigel Frayne
deadline to receive registration is September 24th, 2004!

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 daytime 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 led 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 acoustic environments in their communities. 

Day two: The design of acoustic environments in public spaces will be
led by Australian guest Nigel Frayne, President of the World Forum
for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE). From his work as an acoustic designer
Nigel will present a number of project examples such as museums,
zoos, and large public architectural projects that integrate the
principles of acoustic design first formulated by the World
Soundscape Project in the 1970s.

Registration fees for the retreat are $195 (CDN) for CASE/WFAE
members and $225 for non-CASE/WFAE members. The registration fee
covers meals and accommodation for the retreat. The non-CASE/WFAE
rate provides the participant with membership in CASE or WFAE for one
year which includes receiving the bi-annual publication Soundscape ­
The Journal of Acoustic Ecology. For more information e-mail or call 416-910-7231.
