Take a sonic field trip to the Ringing Rocks County Park in Upper Black Eddy, PA to hear boulders that sound like bells when struck. Featuring music made with and inspired by these sonorous stones by Michael Sterns and Ron Sunsinger, Stephen Bradley and Edward Ruchalski, Annelids, Prahnas, and the Gondwana Jazz band.

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
