June 28-29 Elima: Intensive Workshop of Soundscape Recording. "VacuaMœnia offers an intensive workshop in order to provide useful information on the theories and practices that enable the entry level user, even less experienced, record and compose the soundscape. The workshop will take place in Poggioreale, a country rich in history, entirely destroyed by the earthquake of Belice in 1968 and later rebuilt in the valley. The theoretical sessions will be held in the council room of the municipality and the recording sessions in the old country. The works tell a new territory through the sound and give energy to the stories of those who lived through the earthquake and rebuilding of this new story. In this respect, of great importance will be the sponsor, the Municipality of Poggioreale and the help of the Poggioreale Antica association that will enable participants to know the place and collecting the stories for the creative process."

August 28-29, 2014 Audio Fabric: Socio-Sonic Textures in the Real World. The fourth annual Irish Sound, Science and Technology Convocation (ISSTC 2014) will be held at National University Ireland, Maynooth.This year’s Convocation examines the social impact of sound in the real world: natural soundscapes, music, technological sounds, mediated sounds, spaces, places and sites. Technology cannot be divorced from the interconnections with cultural output, social practice and aesthetics. We seek to contextualise all sound-making and its sciences and technologies. What is the societal impact of our artistic and technical practice with sound? How does our research and practice impact the wider community? Finally, given that our practice is, for the most part, financed by public funding, what is it that we are giving back? Read More
