As WMNF Artist in Residence Steve will engage in an active process of field recording on the Forest from July 24 to August 12. He will gather, collect and archive sounds of wildlife, insects, water features, and human activity. The edited files will be transformed into an aural map of the WMNF that will be accessible to residents, hikers and campers, interested listeners, musicians/artists, and the world at large.
You can follow the progress of Steve's Hear the Forest project at heartheforest.org.
Steve will also lead several public workshops and lectures with the goal of encouraging residents and visitors to continue the work of recording and contributing to the ongoing sound file collection. If you are interested in learning more about the project, and would like to hear about upcoming programs, we invite you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
