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.

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
