To celebrate World Listening Day 2012 the Free Music Archive have put together a compilation of field recordings. I was excited to find that two of my recordings from Japan were included alongside some really great work.
You can stream or download the compilation here.
To quote the World Listening Project website, World Listening Day takes place annually for the following purposes:
- to celebrate different ways we can focus on our soundscape (sonic environment);
- to raise awareness about the acoustic ecology movement, including ideas regarding how noise pollution can be reduced;
- and to introduce new educational initiatives and community events related to listening and acoustic ecology.
