Riverland Biosphere Soundscape Lab (24-26 May)
6:30pm Friday 24 May - 2pm Sunday 26 May 2019, at Calperum Station, Renmark SA

Biosphere Soundscapes is a large-scale interdisciplinary research project underpinned by the creative possibilities of acoustic ecology and rapidly emerging fields of biology exploring environmental patterns and changes through sound. Acoustic ecology is a field of inquiry concerned with the ecological, social and cultural contexts of our sonic environments. This project is designed to inspire communities across the world to listen to the environment and explore the value of sound as a measure for environmental health in UNESCO biosphere reserves. The project is delivered through immersive residencies with artists and scientists, research laboratories, intensive masterclasses and a diversity of creative projects spanning four continents. 

Funded by a Country Arts SA grant, the Riverland Biosphere Soundscape Lab will take place between May 24-26 2019 at Calperum Station in SA’s Riverland.  Informed by the creative possibilities of acoustic ecology, and rapidly emerging fields of biology exploring environmental patterns and changes through sound, the Lab will bring together artists, scientists and community members to explore the acoustic environments of the Riverland Biosphere.

Led by SA interdisciplinary composer and sound artist Jesse Budel, participants will take part in a variety of activities across the weekend, including field trips, field recordings, creative work listening sessions, expert presentations, and group discussions.  Supported by the Australian Forum for Acoustic Ecology and the Terrestrial Ecosystems Research Network, participants will immerse themselves in artistic, scientific and cultural perspectives on the acoustic ecology of the Riverland Biosphere Soundscape Lab.

Shared accomodation and food is provided.  Participants will need to organise their own travel to and from Calperum Station.
