Abstract
Other Minds is teaming up with Hildegard Westerkamp to deliver boats, trains, fog horns, church bells, and “soundwalking” to your home.

We are excited to announce that sound artist and composer Hildegard Westerkamp will be the subject of the 15th installment of The Nature of Music, subtitled The Soundscape Speaks. The event will take place on the otherminds.org homepage as a free livestream at 6pm on August 18, 2021.

Presented in the form of a virtual interview conducted by veteran radio producer Charles Amirkhanian, the evening will feature seven works by Westerkamp composed between 1978 to 2021, giving a short survey of the composer’s vast body of work. The pair will also discuss the meaning and origins of “acoustic ecology,” how sound impacts the day-to-day of one’s life, the environmental effects of sound, and the role of radio in the proliferation of sound art.

The event will be free of charge and archived on our website after the livestream.

The Soundscape Speaks was made possible due to the generosity of Barbara Bessey.
