Greetings from WFAE President
Eric Leonardson

Greetings! It is my great pleasure to write this end of the year message announcing publication of the new Soundscape: The Journal of Acoustic Ecology.
Soundscape is an annual, peer-reviewed journal published by the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology featuring the latest research in our field. 

Soundscape, Volume 16 is the second of a pair of issues sharing the theme of guest editor Jay Needham, “Sounds Emergent: Diverse Ecologies.”  This edition celebrates the life and work of Pauline Oliveros with articles by Edward Shanken, Yolande Harris, Seth Cluett, Tomie Hahn and Stephan Moore. Also included are reviews and commentary by Honna Veerkamp, Maile Colbert and Heather Contant and an extended article on augmented reality audio by Leah Barclay.  My own report touches on various WFAE activities throughout 2017 including affiliate news and endorsed events and conferences, some of which I recap below. 

Please find your download for the 
PDF of Volume 16 here. Visit WFAE's journal archive to download previous back issues of Soundscape.

On behalf of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology, I wish to express our great appreciation to Phylis Johnson, who picked up the editorial reigns from Soundscape’s founding Editor-in-Chief, Hildegard Westerkamp, in 2012. She worked with guest editors to produce five, high-quality volumes of Soundscape. Following these years of dedicated service to the WFAE, Phylis will now serve as President of the American Society for Acoustic Ecology.
We are thrilled to welcome Leah Barclay, President of the Australian Forum for Acoustic Ecology, as the journal's third Editor-in-Chief. Soundscape, Volume 17 is due for release in June 2018 in conjunction with the  20th anniversary of the 
AFAE. To celebrate, the AFAE will convene the Symposium and International Ecoacoustics Congress 2018 in partnership with the International Society of Ecoacoustics (ISE), Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and Griffith University. The conference is endorsed by the WFAE and the call for papers, posters and creative works is now open.
After the three years of dedicated service, Christopher DeLaurenti has retired as WFAE Secretary, having successfully on-boarded his successor, Tyler Kinnear. Tyler has served on the WFAE Board as the Representative for the 
Canadian Association for Sound Ecology/ Association canadienne pour L’écologie sonore, who proudly endorse his appointment. 

Leah and Tyler continue upgrades to the WFAE website, most notably the addition of a 
WFAE News blog. In March 2018, anticipate a return of your free access to the WFAE’s online Library, our next big updating project! This includes a searchable database for our news archive, all past volumes of Soundscape, supplementary articles, historical resources, plus new content. Our fully implemented website is intended to receive written and digital contributions from the WFAE’s network of Affiliated Organizations, raising the profile of their diverse activities and work, and enriching the global discourse in Acoustic Ecology.

Do not forget to download the 
PDF of Volume 16 here and to visit our website's journal archive for back issues of Soundscape.

 I wish you a happy and peaceful holiday season!

[cec-c] I am genderless like cacti and certain species of fishŠ 19 Jan 2018

I am genderless like cacti and certain species of fish...

CRiSAP presents an event exploring Voice, Intelligent Machines and Identity
As HAL9000, the errant robot in Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey slowly malfunctions and “dies” he sings ‘Daisy Bell’. The use of the song, written by Harry Dacre in 1892, was inspired by author Arthur C. Clarke’s visit to Bell Labs in 1961, where he heard the IBM704 sing the song in the earliest demonstration of computer speech synthesis. Five decades later machine generated voices are ubiquitous and robots are fulfilling more and more roles in our everyday lives. Voice is still one of the main ways in which we communicate with these personal assistants, system controllers or sexual partners and they with us.
I am genderless like cacti and certain species of fish… seeks to explore the current state of speech synthesis and the social, political and cultural issues in computer voice generation through presentations from leading artists and researchers; Professor Roger K MooreChair of Spoken Language Processing at University of Sheffield, Siri Landgren, artist, Alice Emily Baird, artist, researcher and member of Multivocal and Professor Cathy Lanecomposer, sound artist and academic.

This event is part of the Beyond 2001: New Horizons an exhibition celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University’s Archives and Special Collections Centre. Students will produce and show work alongside invited artists and academics that offer new perspectives inspired by archive material from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
A cross-school collaboration celebrating all things screen, the exhibition will be set in motion with accompanying performances, events, panels and workshops, punctuated by screenings of the film for staff and students.
Dedicated to the exploration of the rich complexities of sound as an artistic practice, the centre's aim is to extend the development of the emerging disciplinary field of sound arts and to encourage the broadening and deepening of the discursive context in which sound arts is practised.
