World Listening Day 2021: The Unquiet Earth

Since its inception in 2010, thousands of people from six continents have participated in World Listening Day. July 18th is the birth date of renowned Canadian composer, music educator, and author, R. Murray Schafer. With the World Soundscape Project he developed the fundamental ideas and practices of acoustic ecology in the 1970s. These inform the current, burgeoning interest in our changing acoustic environment. Thus, World Listening Day honors Schafer’s contribution to understanding our world.

Participate in World Listening Day 2021, an annual global event held on July 18. This year's theme is "The Unquiet Earth," created by Raquel Castro.

Languages with complex tonality have generally not developed in very cold or dry climates, suggesting that human language is ecologically adaptive."
