Pioneer Valley Soundscapes is a project that explores the connection between sound and place by documenting the musical communities and acoustic terrain of the Pioneer Valley in Western Massachusetts.

The films, recordings, and images here are produced by students at Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and Smith Colleges and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst through semester-long collaborations with local musicians and partnerships with area communities.

The goal of Pioneer Valley Soundscapes is to share these sounds, images, and stories with others in the Pioneer Valley and beyond and to serve as a resource for ongoing learning and exchange.

Pioneer Valley Soundscapes is taught at Amherst College by Professors Jeffers Engelhardt and Jason Robinson and supported by the Department of Music, the Center for Community Engagement, and Information Technology at Amherst College.
