Listening to Lionel Lindsay's "The Clipped Wing"

Listening to Lionel Lindsay's "The Clipped Wing" | A World of Sound | Scoop.it

'The Clipped Wing' is the most recent offering from JD Lopez's Listening to Art series. Inspired by Lionel Lindsay's 1931 wood-engraving of the same name, this composition imagines the acoustic surroundings of the artwork's main subject, a lone Raven.

 

"A dark wind blows through the leaves of the tree, ravens are heard flying in the distance prompting an occasional croak from the raven in the foreground."

A.R. Gregory Kenyan bird recordings - British Library Sounds | A World of Sound | Scoop.it

A new collection of Kenyan bird recordings has been added to the Environment & Nature section of British Library Sounds. This collection covers the earliest recordings made by Kenyan-based ornithologist and sound recordist A.R. Gregory, who bequeathed his tapes to the Library in 1995. The Gregory archive is vast, comprising more than 4000 recordings made across Kenya from the late 1960s to the late 1990s. More material will be added over the coming months until eventually the entire collection will be online and accessible to anybody who would like to explore this impressive resource.

Medsumoto - Miguel Isaza and Darren McClure : Impulsive Habitat | A World of Sound | Scoop.it

Earlier this year, netlabel Impulsive Habitat released a new phonographic work from Miguel Isaza and Darren McClure. The two recordists created a sound work that linked their respective cities of Medellín, Colombia and Matsumoto, Japan. The final piece uses a number of field recordings to create a sound montage that allows the two locations to sonically co-exist and complement each other.

Mark Peter Wright | 30 Minutes of Listening - exhibition

Mark Peter Wright | 30 Minutes of Listening - exhibition | A World of Sound | Scoop.it

'30 Minutes of Listening' is an upcoming exhibition curated by Mark Peter Wright at the IMT Gallery in Hackney. Running from 2nd November - 2nd December, the works presented draw specific inspiration and focus from the area South Gare: a designated site of special scientific interest in Redcar in northeastern England. Taking one 30-minute period of listening in South Gare as its point of departure, the exhibition proposes possible ways of experiencing time and space in relation to this singular moment. Through film, sound, photography, objects and text, Wright examines the dialectical nature of listening and its potential to transgress both physical and mental territories of place and self.

Wrens teach their eggs to speak - Nature

Wrens teach their eggs to speak - Nature | A World of Sound | Scoop.it

Researchers have discovered that female Superb Fairy-wrens teach their unhatched offspring a specific food begging call that will ensure they are fed as nestlings. This preparation allows the parents to distinguish between their own offspring and those of the two parasitic cuckoo species that reguarly plant their eggs in fairy-wren nests.
