Fatto di Fiemme’: Stradivari’s violins and the musical trees of the Paneveggio – Ecomusicology @ UD 2017

Allen’s article, “‘Fatto di Fiemme’: Stradivari’s violins and the musical trees of the Paneveggio,” discusses the issues of sustainability or musical instruments. He focuses on the paneveggio to discuss this issue. A microclimate in the Val di Fiemme has allowed for the ideal growth of the Paneveggian Spruce, resonance wood, which is used in the construction of musical instruments.

Because of this, the area is now known as the forest of violins. Stradivarius violins have been made using this wood. Book of Music and Nature-Audio Companion. Follow index.

It may be a Bach concerto, an old Lead Belly album, an Indian morning raga, or one of my favourite contemporary African pop stars. When I drive to work, I can effortlessly flip channels between pop, rock, jazz, country, bluegrass, opera, and the Wiggles, depending on mood and company. My phone extends and personalizes the choice almost infinitely. Les guitares Gibson ont trop saigné le bois malgache. Sustainable Music. Ecomusicology.

Music professor receives patent to help fight bark beetles ravaging Western forests. UC Santa Cruz music professor David Dunn has joined forces with two forest scientists from Northern Arizona University to combat an insect infestation that is killing millions of trees throughout the West.

Music professor receives patent to help fight bark beetles ravaging Western forests

They are applying the results of nearly a decade of acoustic research in an unconventional collaborative effort to stop bark beetles from tunneling through the living tissue of weakened, drought-stressed pine trees. The trio has now received a patent for a device that uses sound as a targeted sonic weapon to disrupt the feeding, communication, reproduction, and various other essential behaviors of the insects. Dunn explained how this research came about. “When massive tree death started occurring in Northern New Mexico where I was living, I became curious if there were sounds associated with such a large amount of biological activity,” said Dunn. “At that time there was still the assumption that this was the result of a local bark beetle infestation due to drought conditions.

Fields of Green: Music Festivals and Climate Change - Creative Carbon Scotland

Fields of Green was a one year research project (April 2015 – April 2016) funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council exploring the environmental sustainability of Scotland’s music festivals and their capacity to enable ‘greener’ audience behaviours within the temporary communities formed during such events. The project aimed to lay the foundations for a future community of practice of music festival organisers and artists working together towards a greener Scotland. Rethink Music.

Ecomusicology. Record the Earth is an app for contributing to ecological research by hunting soundscapes. While you are outside catching Pokemon, why not pause for a moment and record some ambient sounds instead? That's what the University of Purdue scientists would like you to do, and they made an app to facilitate it. It's called Record the Earth 2, and just like with movies, the sequel is always better than the original! The app lets users record audio snapshots of their surroundings and upload them to the Global Soundscapes Archive as part of a global citizen science program maintained by the Purdue University.

Discussion: Music in the Anthropocene. Editor's Note: In this short piece, composer Nathan Currier responds to an article by Mark Perlman that appeared in a prior issue of the Ecomusicology Newsletter and previews a longer article of his own, "Classical Music in the Anthropocene," which appeared in a later issue of that publication and can be read here. “In some cases our work might have direct relevance to environmental problems,” Marc Perlman noted in “Ecology and Ethno/Musicology: The Metaphorical, the Representational, and the Literal” in the Ecomusicology Newsletter 1, no. 2 (October 2012). “In other cases the relevance could be very indirect, or indeed conjectural; but I suspect that in most cases our ultimate concerns are environmentalist ones.”
