Matrix 441 joins World Listening Day 2019 : Listening With
Every year in July, people around the globe gather to celebrate World Listening Day. This year Matrix 441 theme is “Listening With”. Listening with an awareness that all around you are other life-forms simultaneously listening and sensing with you – plant roots, owls, cicadas, voles – mutually intertwined within the web of vibrations which animate and surround our planet.
Matrix 441 Association is among dozens of organizations and thousands of people from six continents who have participated in World Listening Day. July 18th is the birth date of renowned Canadian composer, music educator, and author, R. Murray Schafer. His World Soundscape Project developed the fundamental ideas and practices of acoustic ecology in the 1970s. These inform the current, burgeoning interest in our changing acoustic environment. Thus, World Listening Day honors Schafer’s contribution to understanding our world.
