Keep an ear on…
5th international FKL symposium on soundscape

FKL (Forum Klanglandschaft – Forum for the soundscape) is an European association that wants to serve as a platform for contact between people from different disciplines that deal with the soundscape and acoustic spaces.
The FKL was born as a result of the impetus given by the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology WFAE (Vancouver, BC) was formed in 1993 based on research carried out in 70 years. The FKL is a non-profit organization, is open to all those interested in listening and sound environmental stewardship.
 Every two years FKL organizes its conference in a different European city.

Keep an ear on…” is the fifth international symposium on soundscape organized by the FKL (Forum Klanglandschaft).
In 2011, the conference will be held in Florence (Italy) in collaboration with the Center for Music Research Tempo Reale and the Centre for Contemporary Art EX3.
