After the stillness of winter, springtime in the Almaguin Highlands awakens the ears to a suddenly active soundscape of birds, frogs and the drumming of the ruffed grouse. The first weekend of May at Warbler's Roost (22 KM west of South River) provides an exciting opportunity for artists, musicians, nature-lovers, soundscape researchers, field recordists and birders to enjoy the acoustic wonders of the spring season while learning about the art of soundscape recording.

Events include a soundscape concert with guest artist by David Eagle, a “dawn chorus” multi-channel recording session, lecture demonstration on interactive technology and soundscape recordings, and workshop on recording and editing soundscapes with NAISA Artistic Director Darren Copeland.

Practical Details:

- All levels of experience are welcome.
- Equipment available for those who require it. Those with recording equipment are welcome to bring their own.
- Dress for cold weather in evenings and early mornings as well as for some walking on muddy and wet surfaces.
