The artists will then lead an afternoon workshop, introducing the participants to simple sound editing and uploading to the radio aporee maps projects.

World Listening celebrates the practice of listening to the world around us, increasing our environmental awareness. The day is an opportunity to explore through listening, create and share soundscapes.

WLD is co-organised by the World Listening Project (WLP) and the Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology (MSAE).

The project radio aporee ::: maps started in 2006. it is a global soundmap dedicated to phonography, field recording (and related practices) and the art of listening. It connects sound recordings and places, in order to create a sonic cartography, open to the public as a collaborative project. It contains recordings from numerous urban, rural and natural environments, showing their audible complexity, as well as the different perceptions, practices and artistic perspectives of its many contributors, related to sound, public and private spaces, listening and sense of place.
