Shawn Decker - Chorus

Shawn Decker - Chorus | A World of Sound | Scoop.it

 Chorus is a site-specific installation created for the Lincoln Park Conservatory in Chicago as part of the Experimental Sound Studio's Florasonic series curated by Lou Mallozzi. This series puts an ambient sound installation each year in the conservatory's Fern Room delivered by a four channel sound system.

 

Decker said of his work:

 

"In Chorus, I borrow from the insects in creating a work for the Fern Garden – using many simple components and small sounds, layered to form thicker strata, rhythms, swelling and dissipating structures as a collective voice. Some of the sounds that I use are taken directly from nature – field recordings I have made in a variety of prairie meadows, and forests here in Illinois. Others are purely synthetic – the simplest of sounds that when combined together have the same effect of creating sound through their superimposition, their interference with one another, their “chorusing.”

Phonographies

Phonographies | A World of Sound | Scoop.it

Phonographies is a wax cylinder collection with a difference - all recordings were made in the 21st century! As physical recordings become increasingly pushed to the margins, individuals such as Aleks Kolkowski embrace the history and nostalgia of the early days of sound recording. A wonderful project.

'The Tree' by James Wyness. 

 

"The Tree [40:00] is one of a series of four works entitled Centre and Edge, the result of research into specific compositional practices, the production of space, the anthropology of place names, paleoanthropology, human marks on the land and the natural and human history of Southern Scotland. Field work began in 2009 when I investigated a range of environments and sonic phenomena in the Scottish Borders and North Northumberland, the focus of my digital sound archive."
