School of Wild Listening

The School of Wild Listening is a platform for the discussion and dissemination of ecological sound art and music. In our current age of ecological disconnection, listening provides a means to explore and cultivate a deeper connection to the world around us.

This listening provides a knowledge for initiating cultural change and allows us to pro-actively engage with the biodiversity and climate crisis conversation.
The School of Wild Listening programme includes listening group sessions and workshops with guest artists, performances, soundwalks and more.


For the Wild Mind the School of Wild Listening presents a listening group with the School of Wild Listening director, composer Robert Coleman and local artist Chris Steenson. This will be an open conversation which will include an introduction to the act of ecological listening, and feature field recordings and soundscape compositions.

Through recent works On Chorus and Connemara Landscape Chris will discuss themes of collective listening and the contemporary environment. This will be complemented by Robert’s recent research from the temperate rainforest at the Vale of Clara and a new developing wood in the Belfast Hills which will serve as an introduction to bird language.
