Garth Paine and Sabine Feisst's Ecolisten Artist Program was selected for the 2018 Joshua Tree Art Innovation Laboratory at Joshua Tree National Park. Feisst, a professor in the School of Music, and Paine, a professor in both the School of Music and the School of Arts, Media and Engineering, are co-directors of ASU's Acoustic Ecology Lab.

In the coming year, they will work with the Joshua Tree Art Innovation Laboratory to conduct a series of community listening and field recording workshops in Joshua Tree National Park. These workshops will generate several creative outcomes including crowd-sourced ambisonic field recordings, audio works and virtual reality experiences.

The Joshua Tree Art Innovation Laboratory “explores new roles that arts professionals and arts students can play in helping the National Park Service pursue its mission of preservation and engagement.”  The program is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts’ “Imagine Your Parks” initiative honoring the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.
