In these digitally mediated projects, students engage with the acoustic environment of Davidson College and the Town of Davidson. According to R. Murray Schafer (who popularized the term “soundscape”), “We can isolate an acoustic environment as a field of study just as we can study the characteristics of a given landscape.” In the projects presented here, students have listened to various social, academic, athletic, and natural spaces, and incorporated ecological, social, and technological approaches in their analysis of these soundscapes. Their writing incorporates both experiential and theoretical approaches, as students present and discuss sounds they’ve captured in these domain-based projects. Visitors will be able to listen to and read these projects, and their creators will be on hand to discuss their work and answer questions.
