This episode of the FSM video blog documents the inclusion of some hydrophone recordings made across the Fleurieu region. As well as covering some background with DIY and JrF models, there’s some excerpts of the recordings; which you can listen to in their entirety over at the sound map.
The Fleurieu Sound Map has been getting a lot more attention this year, with various archival recordings being added as well as a batch of new recordings from the Yankalilla District. This recent trip to Yank is documented in the new video below.
There’s more to come over the next couple of weeks, with another update featuring archived hydrophone and contact mic recordings. Earlier this year I decided to broaden the scope of the sound map to include recordings of this type since I think it will provide a deeper and more interesting insight into the soundscapes of the region.
I’m currently in the process of uploading these recordings as well as producing a special new video which will provide an overview of the hydrophone/contact mic process and feature some of the recordings.
My submission for The People’s Weather Report.
The People’s Weather Report is a global response to the enormity of climate change, from a number of very personal perspectives. In an installation created by eco designer Tanja Beer, using recycled materials and showcased during Going Nowhere, audiences are invited to experience a 24 hour sound work of original ‘weather reports’, collected from participants located around the world.
