Listen(n) Project selected for Joshua Tree Art Innovation Laboratory

The Acoustic Ecology Lab is pleased to announce that the Joshua Tree Art Innovation Laboratory selected in a competitive review its proposed Ecolisten Artist Program. In the coming year we work with the Laboratory to conduct a series of community listening and field recording workshops in Joshua Tree National Park. These workshops will generate several creative outcomes including crowd-sourced ambisonic field recordings, audio works and virtual reality experiences. The Joshua Tree Art Innovation Laboratory “explores new roles that arts professionals and arts students can play in helping the National Park Service pursue its mission of preservation and engagement.” The program is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts’ “Imagine your Parks” initiative honoring the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.
