EcoAcoustics STAGE

Matthew Burtner, Professor of Music, invited undergraduate students in his Spring 2015 MUSI 3400 course to participate in the EcoAcoustics STAGE (Sonic Thought and Action for Global Environmentalism) project, which interwove elements of performance, scholarship, and activism. Under Burtner's direction, students made use of the new Telematic Stage facility in the Department of Music to curate and produce a web-based performance series aimed at querying global environmentalism through sound art. The project featured collaboration with representatives of the EcoSono and Climate Reality Project organizations, providing students with real-world experiences of working at the intersection of environmentalism and the arts.
