Finnish research group have visited Dollar three times starting from 1999 following the path of the Canadian World Soundscape Project carrying out research here in 1975. The recently published book Acoustic Environments in Change / Five Village Soundscapes is including sounds and stories of this village. The book will be presented at the Dollar Museum on Thursday 28th April at 7.30 o’clock pm.
What is more important is that we would like to hear your impressions on our research. So anyone interested in sharing his or her thoughts of the past, present and future soundscapes of Dollar is welcomed to join us on Thursday. We will be there for you on Saturday 30th as well from 11am to 1pm and from 2pm to 4.30pm.
This Dollar’s research website will be updated daily by the Soundscapes and Cultural Sustainability group. Villagers are hereby invited to contribute the website, too.
See you soon
