The Montréal Sound Map — Call for Participation: Sound maps are in many ways the most effective auditory archive of an environment, touching on political, artistic, cultural, historical, and technological aspects. Montréal Sound Map’s aim is to create an archival database of sound recordings from all over Montréal.
They are accepting all (unprocessed) audio recordings (past and present) of Montreal’s sound environments. As they gather submissions, they will be placing them into a browsable tagging system based on criteria including: Sound Source (characteristics); Location (borough, neighbourhood, municipality); Date (time of day, month, day of week, year, season); Environment Type (park, metro, indoors, outdoors, etc…); Equipment (recording device, microphone, etc…). Files can be uploaded through the form on the ‘Uploads’ section of the website.
The Concordia Electroacoustic Studies Student Association (CESSA) was established Fall of 2007. Our focus is primarily in spreading awareness of electroacoustic matters throughout Concordia and Montréal via projects and events, expressing particular interests in health, environmental, and social issues pertaining to sound.
