Acousmatic park is a sound installation that explores aural awaneress and modes of listening through bioacoustics and questions the potential impacts of noise pollution in animal communication.
Masking is one of the great challenges for clear communication amongst individuals
Field recordings where done in several parks, with a particular emphasis on animal sounds and natural environments. This installation aims to explore the concept of personal sound spaces fostering the exploration of deep listening, semantic listening and causal listening.
