Hear stories and sounds of weather, water, wildlife, and work in the landscapes of author Ivan Doig. Join Acoustic Atlas team members for their session at Doig Country: Imagining Montana and the West, a free symposium at Montana State University on the life and works of the acclaimed Western author.
Learn how the intersection of the Ivan Doig archive and the Acoustic Atlas at Montana State University Library inspired our effort to capture auditor vignettes of Doig’s landscapes along Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front and Shields River Valley as well as parts of Northwestern Washington. The session will discuss how these recordings contribute to the Acoustic Atlas, the Ivan Doig collection, and MSU Library programs, partnerships, and outreach.
We hope to see you there!
Presented by Acoustic Atlas Program Director Jeff Rice and Program Manager Molly Arrandale.

Audio recordings from the Acoustic Atlas will be featured at the Big Sky Country State Fair in Bozeman from July 19 – 23. Soundscapes of rodeo events, livestock and the natural environment will accompany an MSU Library exhibit celebrating the life and work of the late novelist Ivan Doig.
In 2016, the Acoustic Atlas conducted several recording trips tracing locations featured in Doig’s writings as part of the library’s new Ivan Doig archive. Doig was raised in Montana and spent much of his life writing about his experiences. He wrote more than 16 books of fiction and non-fiction.
