Making Waves: Winter Diary Revisited by Claude Schryer (Audio)
Winter Diary Revisited, a new work by Claude Schryer, was the first presentation of the 2022 Deep Wireless Festival of Radio and Transmission Art which took place on Sunday February 6th at the new NAISA North Media Arts Centre, a building recently purchased by New Adventures in Sound Art. This radio documentary is a tribute to R. Murray Schafer who passed away in August 2021. Schafer’s writing and the research undertaken with the World Soundscape Project were foundational to the development of the field of acoustic ecology. Schryer goes back to Schafer’s diaries that he was keeping in the late 1990’s when the two worked together on the production of A Winter Diary which was created for WDR Köln. Schryer's documentary also forms episode 99 of his Conscient podcast series and includes the voice of Canadian poet Robin Mathews reading Schafer’s words.
