Audio Postcards Canada is here!
CASE is celebrating World Listening Day today with the official launch of Audio Postcards Canada, a curated online exhibition showcasing the diverse acoustic features of Canada. The online exhibition consists of 16 compelling 1-2 minute “audio postcards” from across Canada that range from field recordings, soundscape and electroacoustic compositions, radio art, and various combinations of these areas.
Here is a podcast introduction to Audio Postcards Canada in which project lead Carmen Braden takes us through excerpts from the 16 pieces chosen for the exhibition as we listen to curators Andrea Dancer and Hildegard Westerkamp discuss the experience of putting this project together.
