[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Hildegard Westerkamp — India Sound Journal

Artist Statement


The work consists of a series of performance pieces based on recordings and journal entries from my first trip to India. It is a dramatic treatment of my encounters with this culture and the surprises, difficulties and excitements it holds for many visitors from urban North American/European origin. In today’s performance of India Sound Journal, you will hear selected excerpts from this larger work-in-progress.

  • Hildegard Westerkamp (Canada) has been the editor of The Soundscape newsletter since 1991 and is a founding member of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology.
