"Acoustic ecology, sometimes called soundscape ecology, is the relationship, mediated through sound, between living beings and their environment. Acoustic ecology studies started in the late 1960s with R. Murray Schafer and his team at Simon Fraser University (Vancouver, Canada) as part of the World Soundscape Project." Artist Joey Huertas explores the sounds and the melody of the power of nature.
"The first study produced by the WSP was titled The Vancouver Soundscape. The interest in this area grew enormously after this pioneer and innovative study and the area of acoustic ecology raised the interest of researchers and artists all over the world. In 1993 the members of the by now large and active international acoustic ecology community formed the World Forum For Acoustic Ecology."
The World Forum For Acoustic Ecology publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, and the annual Soundscape: The Journal of Acoustic Ecology. Nine international affiliate organizations provide members with regional and local opportunities.
