"Hildegard Westerkamp is sensitive to soundscape. She ably shapes fanciful, imaginative music from her recordings, mixing and transformations of the soundscape." - Pauline Oliveros

"I hear the soundscape as a language with which places and societies express themselves. In the face on rampant noise pollution, I want to be understanding and caring of this 'language' and how it is 'spoken'.

"I compose with any sound that the environment offers to the microphone, just as a writer works with all the words that a language provides. It is in the specific ways in which the language is selected, organized and processed that composition occurs." - Hildegard Westerkamp, Vancouver, August 1995
