The Sound Studies Institute (SSI) at the University of Alberta supports research and creative activities that centralize sound in any way. SSI offers researchers opportunities to work collaboratively, discover new areas of convergent enquiry, benefit from collective administrative support, and it provides a philosophical and physical locus for sharing, exploring, and celebrating collaboration and innovation across disciplines.
As stewards of the Moses and Frances Asch Collection of Folkways Records, SSI promotes the creation, preservation, and dissemination of knowledge about of music and culture through research, archival, and performance projects, including our annual Winter Roots Roundup Festival (winterroots.ca).
