which tells a story… have a listen and see if you can guess it. I hope there are some pretty clear clues to at least part of it. I’ll walk you through it to explain the idea, and then give you the two I made for this year to
see hear if you can be a detective and put together the pieces. LISTEN TO THE LINK ABOVE BEFORE READING ON!
In last year’s recording (the link above) I walked across the (very) squeaky kitchen floor to get an apple out of a bag, walked to the sink and rinsed it, got out a plate and a knife, cut the apple, and ate it!
Could you get that from listening? Most of it? Some of it?
Well, you’re ready for this year’s challenges!
Here are the two short recordings I made for today.I am not a tech whiz, these were recorded on my phone, transferred to Audacity, and then converted to MP3s before uploading them to Soundcloud. If I can do it, you can too! Each is different and the only clue I’ll give is that the first one is one place, and in the second recording I am moving- so I take you to hear different sounds that are found in the place I chose.
Have a listen and please comment with all the things you can hear – even if they are guesses. I promise there is nothing unpleasant on the audio… all ordinary things… and then in a few days I’ll post the photos that reveal the settings. It’s like a game!
We can chat about soundscapes, the processes of listening, and anything else from Week 1 at our first Hangout:
Wednesday 16 Sept @ 18:00 BST (GMT +1)
