Sound Off

Human industry is now noisy enough to drown out whale songs. What would happen in the ocean if we went quiet? 

A very interesting article about Whale communication and the human industry on Aeon

FKAALIYADE. Paris based illustrator and contributor of Soundry Ignacio Peticollot changed his plans after he went listening live to FKA twigs yesterday. As usual, he was going to send us a drawing of an audio situation, something on paper to explore the hearer. ‘The existence of the artists I heard yesterday changes my own existence’ he said. ‘I owe them at least a drawing’ ! Hope you enjoy this week’s ‘Drawing Listening' as much as Ignacio enjoyed the gig last night ;)

Draw me a sound

We collaborate with Paris based illustrator Nacho Petitcollot to explore sound with pen and paper. Listening is absorbing vibrations as if you were a big ball of wool. Listening is about letting your imagination run free in fields of sounds. We hope you enjoy this new drawing and the whole ‘Drawing Listening' project on Soundry !

Pushing further the boundaries of storytelling and what a book can be : sound artist Magz Hall creates a ‘book radio’ !

sound-art-text:

For Unbinding The Book, Magz Hall will create a ‘book-radio’, which will transmit the words contained into an eternal loop. It cannot be conventionally read, rather the listener must tune to the right frequency in order to access it’s content. The text itself will be ‘Spiritual Radio’, initially published in 1925. This text sets out cleric and radio enthusiast Archbishop F.H. du Vernet’s vision of the nascent technology as a spiritually-charged electrical force capable of mediating human sensibilities and the transcendent will of God in a text that is by turns visionary and often absurd in the bathetic disjuncture between spiritual promise and quotidian reality.

Armoniapolis : Instructions for recomposing the soundscape of the world

By changing the way we listen to the world we can create a whole new version of it.

First of all, we loved the beautiful grey and white map on which you land when reaching Armoniapolis. By clicking on places you’ll unveiled simple and inspiring instructions to play with the sounds around you. Très très cool.

Sounds of the world often appear as an incoherent flow of information that surrounds us. They are however forming variety of captivating structures that only a concentrated ear can perceive. Being in constant motion and distracted by the large amount of events that engage all of our senses, each day we are overhearing sublime musical fragments in our own environment.

The aim of this project is to bring focus to sounds that already exist around us and to encourage conscious listening and the creative use of these sounds. We do not have to be passive listeners of our lively or polluted sound environment or depend upon technological tools to be able to interact with it.
