CJLO 1690AM Presents: Tell Captivating Stories about the Environment with Amanda Gutierrez
March 23, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
How can you tell interesting audio stories? What are the ways we can move away from conventional narratives? Join sound artist and Concordia Ph.D. student Amanda Gutierrez as she guides you through interdisciplinary modes of listening, departing from Acoustic Ecology and Digital Cartography as the main tools of research-creation. The workshop will overview audio maps that preserve aural biodiversity around the globe, such as Radio Aporee, Sounds of The Forest, among other aural cartographies developed in Latin America.
The session will include an informal Q&A and an opportunity to create a simple audio map, using google maps as an audio archive tool.
