An excerpt from my piece, Rain And Electromagnetic Interference From Dashboard Of A 1965 El Camino, was featured on Kate Carr’s Mixcloud show, Interiorities.
Phonography Austin would like to invite you to participate in C19 Soundscape Documentation, a new research project, starting today.
Decreased human activity during the COVID-19 pandemic has created an unique opportunity to gather data on how the soundscape has changed. Anonymized data will be published on a monthly basis.
All it will require is thirty minutes of your time, once a week, at the same time and location, a sound pressure level (SPL) meter, and something to take notes with.
Follow the link for instructions, a form for data input, and a list of free SPL meter apps.
Thank you, in advance, for your participation!
I was thrilled to chat with the charming Jeanne Claire van Ryzin in April about the field recordings I’ve been making to document the changes in the blissfully quiet pandemic. You can read the interview here.
I have been making a lot of field recordings in this much quieter world and finally got them together. You can check them out here.
It’s an ongoing collection that I will continue to add to.
