Sustainable management could not be separated from cultural aspects of our societies. WASCON 2009 decided to co-produce especially for participants to the conference (one day registration at least) in collaboration with the cultural association le Bec à Sons an audio CD presentation of “Musics from Early and Traditional Europe”.
19 titles have been recorded by 29 professional and non-professional musicians (including scientists) to represent 7 different countries from Sweden to Bulgaria, including Spain, the United Kingdom, Ukraine, Macedonia and of course France. Plenty of amazing traditionnal instruments are used in this CD : different kinds of bagpipes, accordions, hurdy-gurdys, flutes, traditional early oboe, nyckelharpas, guitars, bouzouki, bodhran, zarb, daf,...and of course voices.
All the registred participants received a CD. We hope they enjoyed it !
If you are interested by an extra copy of the CD, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (price 15€ - all taxes included).
