November 16, 11 AM – 3 PM
DeLeon Springs State Park, 601 Ponce DeLeon Blvd, DeLeon Springs, FL (meet at the Visitor’s Center)
Second full day of ACA soundscape immersion with Stetson University professor, Dr. Nathan Wolek, and special guest Jack Hines of Wild Sanctuary, the internationally acclaimed soundscape field research and sound arts group founded by Dr. Bernie Krause (author of The Great Animal Orchestra: Finding the Origins of Music in the World’s Wild Places). Jack Hines is a musician, environmental advocate, GIS technician, field-recordist, soundscape ecologist, and educator with nearly 20 years as an associate member of Wild Sanctuary. His deep understanding of sounds of the natural wild, their relationship to music, and to those of enhancing human health and wellness, make him a multi-talented leader in this field. Both studied and intuitive, Jack’s comprehensive field and teaching skills along with his enthusiasm to share the wonders of the outdoors – and relate them to life in the modern world – are timely and vital.
Stetson University professor, Nathan Wolek is an audio artist and researcher whose works have been shared across the United States, in addition to engagements in Korea, Germany, Norway, Canada and Brazil. Dr. Wolek holds a Ph.D. in music technology from Northwestern University and a B.M. in digital arts from Stetson University. He serves as the Chair of Creative Arts and is a professor of Digital Arts and Music Technology.
Join Atlantic Center for the Arts, Stetson University, and Wild Sanctuary for a Soundwalk at 11 AM, then explore deeper into the inner world of soundscape and field recording with a presentation at DeLeon Springs State Park. This beautiful park contains a natural spring, wooded trails, and a plethora of sounds! Dr. Wolek will enlist the participation of Stetson University students to share the hyperreal resolution of microphones to amplify the soundscape. Jack Hines will be on hand to lead the public in listening awareness exercises and share stories from his many global excursions in sound.
RSVP required. Limited to 60 participants. Free with park admission.
