I never know quite what to make of sound recordings like this one as I always feel I’m only getting half of what soundscape musician Hein Schoer experienced: something like this document needs to be visual and to be seen along with the soundtrack. The tracks on offer here consist of field recordings of the natural sounds and wildlife of the Alert Bay area and of the activities of the ‘Namgis people.

The project initiated the modern study of acoustic ecology. Its ultimate goal is "to find solutions for an ecologically balanced soundscape where the relationship between the human community and its sonic environment is in harmony

In the following weeks, posts from myself and Vincent Andrisani will further the conversation geographically, temporally, and methodologically.

Alert Bay is a village on Cormorant Island, in the Regional District of Mount Waddington, British Columbia, Canada. 1,200-1,500 people live within the village. Up to a half of the village's residents are First Nations people. The village is in traditional Kwakwaka'wakw territory. Two Indian Reserves take up the rest of Cormorant Island, Alert Bay 1 on the east side of the island, Alert Bay 1A on the west.

Notes

1a) Slowly evolving sound field, on which the sounds of the Pacific Northwest Coast can sprout, opening up into

1b) sounds of water, air, forest (realms one, two and three), life, seamlessly leading to

1c) sounds of people, machines, everyday sounds, genuine practices like woodwork and fishing, leading into

1d) speech (bilingual), dialogue, song, Native School, fading into

1e) ritual instruments, music, ceremony, traditional song and dance, heavily processed and based mainly on recordings from the Bobby Duncan potlatch (realm four).

1f) (The Return Journey) Leaving the Spirit World on a trail that leads halfway back to the 1st Movement, ending in the Band Cabin at Woss Lake, in a “here-and-now” situation, with Wa singing and the wind in the trees.
