The Sound of Brockport

How often do we listen to the world around us? What do some of the familiar soundscapes of Brockport consist of? What are the keynote and other dominant sounds in our environment? In sports? In firestations? On campus? What might these sounds look like on paper? How do these sounds affect us? We tend to go through our day without paying much attention to the sounds in our environment and how they might affect our daily lives. The students on this panel will present original research papers based on theories of sonic environmentalism and ethnomusicology applying basic research procedures in the field of ethnomusicology learned in Brockport's World Music courses. Each paper details a particular sound environment selected by the student, as well as original notation as to what the noises, music, and other sonic effects might look like when graphed.
