*Westerkamp’s biography:*

Whether as a composer, educator, or radio artist most of Hildegard’s work
since the mid-seventies has centred around environmental sound and acoustic
She has taught courses in Acoustic Communication at Simon Fraser University
(1981-91) in Vancouver (BC) and is giving lectures and conducting
soundscape workshops internationally.
She is a founding member of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE,
1993) and was the editor of The Soundscape Newsletter between 1991 and ’95
and is now on the editorial committee of Soundscape—The Journal of Acoustic
Ecology, a new publication of the WFAE. Her compositions have been
performed and broadcast in many parts of the world. The majority of her
compositions deal with aspects of the acoustic environment: with urban,
rural or wilderness soundscapes, with the voices of children, men and
women, with noise or silence, music and media sounds, or with the sounds of
different cultures, and so on. She has composed film soundtracks, sound
documents for radio and has produced and hosted radio programs such as
Soundwalking and Musica Nova on Vancouver Co-operative Radio.
