Soundscape Composition at SFU

Desarts Sonnants's insight:

The pioneering work of the World Soundscape Project (WSP) at Simon Fraser University (SFU), although primarily intended as educational and archival, nevertheless fostered the development of a style of electroacoustic music which I have termed "soundscape composition" (Truax, 1984, 1996, 2000). At first, the intent was to document and re-present recordings of various sonic environments to the listener in order to foster awareness of sounds that are often ignored, and hence to promote the importance of the soundscape in the life of the community. The first such systematic study was The Vancouver Soundscape, published in 1973, consisting of a booklet and two long-play records.

The studio techniques used at that time consisted mainly of transparent editing and mixing of untransformed original recordings, selected for their aural interest and representativeness of the soundscape in question. Of equal technical importance was the attention given to the recording technique, and today the tape archive which remains from those efforts, as recorded across both Canada and Europe between 1972 and 1975, is of excellent quality, having been recorded with a stereo Nagra IV-S and a pair of AKG condenser microphones. A complete catalogue and subject index, both in print form and on the studio website, make this collection accessible to users for a wide variety of purposes.
