Abstract

BAMBOULA / NOLA is a collaborative inter-disciplinary project built around an international/national exhibition of contemporary sound art, a recently launched digital library collection of user generated Louisiana sounds and field recordings called Sounds of Louisiana, workshops and panel discussions on sound art and preservation, and curriculum integration between Tulane University Music Department faculty and students.

Organized and curated by Lisa Hooper (Music and Media Librarian, Howard-Tilton Memorial Library), Jeff Rubin (Digital Initiatives & Publishing Coordinator, Howard-Tilton Memorial Library), Rick Snow, Ph.D. (Department of Music, Tulane University), Philippe Landry (sound artist), and Keene Kooper (Director, May Gallery & Residency), this project was developed to create a broader discourse in New Orleans on sound art, urban planning, architecture and the acoustic ecology of place.

Through the use of a community digital sound repository, site-specific sound art installations and integration of faculty/student classroom engagement, this presentation on a collaborative digital project offers the opportunity to explore the value of collaboration in an effort to engage students and the greater community outside of the university.
