A few thoughts in pictures from visitors to our Sound Map workshop at Tate Modern's June Tate Late
Visitors we're invited to listen to two minute audio tracks of the top most spoken languages, and to respond to the question What did you hear? on a postcard, attaching it to the map. Full details > Sound Map.
Sound Camp is a celebration of International Dawn Chorus day, live streaming day break from around the world for the 24 hours -
"Circling the plant with the rising sun on International Dawn Chorus Day, is assembles daybreak sounds from wherever humans and non-humans meet, in forests, on urban rooftops, in the deep oceans."
Different Camps set up over the weekend across the country and host activities exploring these themes further. I'm very pleased to be involved leading sound walks at the camp in Stave Hill Ecological Park in London, alongside Ian Bolton, Kate Carr, Rebeka Clark, Tom Mudd, Maria Papadomanolaki and Chris Wood.
Great to be apart of this LCC Spring Research Symposium this week sharing my work with the urban environment in Walking With Crickets and hearing more about the amazing A Downland Index publication by Angus Carlyle & Corinne Silva's Garden State in ref to the panel theme of Natural Environments & Atmospheres.
Great video by ISSTA documenting the conference 'Temporary Autonomous Zones' last autumn.
Lovely to meet Robbie Judkins recently and to take a cricket song sound walk around east London together talking about the sound of crickets and insects.
His brilliant radio show Animal Sounds, has a new episode #8 Insects that will air on Resonance 104.4 FM on Friday 25th Nov at 20.00. and feature a bit of our walk.
Its also going to be online afterwards on the Resonance FM Mixcloud page.
