Sound Ecology: Music, Noise, and Sonic Conflict in the Salish Sea
Start Date: 4/2/2014Start Time: 3:30 PM
End Date: 4/2/2014End Time: 5:30 PM

Event Description:
Sound is central to environmental conflicts in the Pacific Northwest. From debates over sonar disruption of whale communication to jet noise in Olympic National Park, environmentalists have advocated for more sustainable soundscapes. Musicians have played central roles, communicating environmental messages, cohering local communities, and making the improbable seem possible through musical performance. Mark Pedelty will present his fieldwork among environmentalist musicians in Washington State and British Columbia, focusing on Dana Lyons (Cows with Guns) and the Raging Grannies, cases that provide clues as to how activist musicians define, and achieve, success.
