Project Description

This Winter Term, we are travelling to the upper peninsula of Michigan to explore its sonic world – the people who record the region for art and science, the sounds they collect, and those they create. Along the way, we will meet with environmental scientists and sonic artists to listen to their perspectives and hear about their engagement with the region. This study will inform the core goal of our project: to use our field recording practice to sound out the interface between nature and culture in the region. Upon returning to Oberlin, we will present what we heard through a multichannel electro-acoustic work and a virtual sound walk.
