World Forum for Acoustic Ecology
Everyone who is interested in sound and noise and the intersections between the two should know about The World Forum for Acoustic Ecology. It is an international organization that focuses on sound, soundscape and ‘acoustic ecology’. It has been active since 1993. It grew out of the work done in Vancouver by R. Murray Schafer and others at Simon Fraser University (SFU).
The Forum publishes the journal Soundscape in PDF format. There are some fascinating articles here, drawn from the past 11 years. Check them out!
They also have a good collection of articles that you should peruse.
And there is also a listing of upcoming events. Again, check them out.
You can also find and follow WFAE on Facebook.
Take note: There is a Deep Listening Conference in July! It looks very interesting.
