Track 4: Eco-Acoustics: The Power of Contemporary Music
Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and others firmly planted music deep within environmental action. Yet humans have always listened to, and co-created with, the sounds of the natural world. In this track, we’ll explore music not only as a means of protest, but also as an aesthetic ecology and a way of participating with, and attending to, “the other”.
