We thought we couldn’t do it, found time, borrowed time, and completed our SonicPostcards.
Here you go.
We are planning our sound installation for the coming weeks.
Our sound tell a story of a growing school, captured learning, sonic snapshots from our beginnings in Switzerland. We have only know each other for 3 months, through sound we’ve met other cities, lives and people. In our final session we discovered new perspectives towards art. The end of the project is just the beginning.
Despite a very busy school timetable we managed to finish our sonic postcards. The class was divided into six groups of four .. as we only had one computer that worked.. and each group came and worked individually with me. Excitement levels were high after our very successful morning of recording sounds in the local area. Most groups chose to mix sounds from the quartier with what we managed to capture from within the school grounds. Before listening to everyone’s cards we had a last final listen to the sonic snaps from Gualtar. The chestnuts roasting and the church bell gave us a lovely impression of what daily life is like there. By way of a reply I hope you enjoy these very urban Parisian postcards. Until the next time, happy listening to you all.
Brussels is back with a whole bunch of sound adventures! We took our recorders with us and started exploring our homes and environments for sonic secrets. We recorded in kitchens, bedrooms and gardens, we listened in zoo’s, parks and in the streets, we played with sticks, stones, doors, gates, and carpets, we rumbled with metal, wood, paper, and plastic stuff, we secretly spied on our sisters, brothers, fathers and mothers conversations, we tried to catch the sound of wind, water and the falling autumn leaves and so many things more. They all can be heard in our Sonic Postcards. Enjoy listening!
A swift sonic update from Brussels, since the 26 of us where very busy and eager searching all kinds of sounds from the neighborhood. Back in the classroom we mixed our first Sonic Snaps. On the pictures below you can see us checking out our recording gear at the schoolyard!
