Live Music in the Sustainable City
In April 2015, RMIT University (Melbourne) hosted the first Sound Check Symposium – Live Music in the Sustainable City.
Attendees included academics, policy makers and members of the live music industry (musicians, venues, sound hire companies, managers and festival organisers) who came together to discuss best practices, how state regulations impact on sound levels and how to sustain our live music industry within this framework.
HEARsmart was delighted to be one of five groups talking at the symposium (others included Marshall Day Acoustics, Music Advocacy and HuonLabs), and we later participated in a round table session too. Discussion ranged from sustainable cities to healthy aging and looked to find synergy in actions dealing with noise pollution on one hand and hearing damage on the other.
