2019 | NETART FIELD RECORDINGS
"Radical Listening" is a browser-based sound exploration from a two-day workshop (The Radical Listener) led by Australian composer Lawrence English at Santa Barbara, California (USA). The workshop encouraged active listening, transforming the familiar into the unfamiliar. Two days opened us –magically– into contemplation and sound documentation of different habitats around the UCSB campus area, our familiar territory back then.
I selected nine short recordings and placed them on a code-generated map. The visitor can either let the code run automatically or adjust the different playing modes available.
Thanks to Fulcrum Arts, The UCSB Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration, and The Media Arts and Technology Graduate Program for funding this workshop.
