Echolocation: Eco Sonic Pioneers
90.7-FM in NY's Upper Hudson Valley and wgxc.org/listen everywhere
Produced by Elizabeth LoGiudice.
In celebration of WGXC's 10th anniversary, we'll take a look back at ecological sound artists that we've featured on Echolocation. We share pieces by Pauline Oliveros, Annea Lockwood, Hildergard Westercamp, Mariolina Zitta, Cheryl E. Leonard, Leah Barclay and Edzi'u. Also featured, a profile of bioacoustics pioneer and marine scientist Marie Poland Fish.
Echolocation explores aspects of environmental art, especially the use of bioacoustics in sound art and musical composition. The show dwells at the junction between art, science and natural sound, and features works by artists working in the fields of soundscape studies, deep listening and acoustic ecology. Featured composers include R. Murray Schaffer, Doug Quin, Lisa Walker, Hildegard Westerkamp, Pauline Oliveros, and others. Each quarterly program includes news and updates from fields related to scientific and artistic studies of environmental sound. Submissions of locally recorded and produced pieces are encouraged. https://www.facebook.com/EcholocationWGXC
