Produced by Darren Copeland.

Sound from the natural world and the urban environment are not background sounds for film and other experiences but rather they are sounds rich in associations and meaning. They are deserving of foreground attention. Filmmakers Mike Hoolboom and Heather Frise along with sound artist Alëna Korolëva join Host Darren Copeland to discuss the importance of environmental sound in their thinking and work. Hoolboom and Frise's film "Listening (with Hildegard Westerkamp)" and Korolëva's soundscape piece "Accidental Wilderness" will be presented in an upcoming online World Listening Day event on July 15 at 7 pm that is hosted by NAISA. Selections from those pieces are shared in this episode.

This monthly program is produced by New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA). The program features selections from the NAISA archives and is produced by Darren Copeland, NAISA Artistic Director. NAISA is a South River-based Canadian organization that presents performances and installations spanning the entire spectrum of electroacoustic and experimental sound art. The objectives of NAISA are to foster awareness and understanding locally, as well as nationally and internationally, in the cultural vitality of experimental sound art in its myriad forms of expression.
