Acoustic Cartography: Re-listening Vancouver

@ 2:00pm - 5:00pm

In conjunction with the UBC Department of Geography and SFU School of Communication, Western Front New Music presents an afternoon workshop of audio works created by geography and communications students, generated from field recordings made throughout the Lower Mainland.

A panel discussion with SFU professor & composer Barry Truax, UBC professor Gerry Pratt and others will contextualize the works from the respective disciplines of acoustic ecology and urban geography.
