with the other two environmental officers (@adampultz and @johnnyvenom ), and a few other members of the NIME community launched a book club to discuss the overlapping of music, tech and the environment.
the first book for our club, The Great Animal Orchestra by Bernie Krause.
@lior (who proposed the book) suggested that the most pertinent chapter is 8 - about the adverse effects of noise on sound ecologies. From there Lior suggested going to chapter 7 (adverse effects of noise on humans) and to chapter 5 (hypothesis on how human music evolved from natural soundscapes). Then the rest of the book for whoever has the time
We will meet on Monday 10th of May at 16.00 pm (UCT - that currently is one hour behind London, due to summertime – Time Zone & Clock Changes in UTC, Time Zone).
For the meeting will use the following jitsi room:
We will record the call, and publish it in the eco wiki (https://eco.nime.org/) later on. We expect the meeting to be one hour, 75 minutes at the most.
