Composer, radio artist and sound ecologist, Hildegard Westerkamp focuses on her own compositional work and its inherent connection to the visual. I'll trace the process of listening from the first step of recording to the presentation of the finished piece and how the sounds themselves, in the context of this type of listening, guide a piece into what it becomes its structure and its message. My intention is to build connections between the professional ear (of the sound designer, composer or director), the media ear (of the audience) and the daily life ear (of all of us).
