Sonic landscapes

Kimbal Quist Bumstead

Sonic Landscapes is a participatory project exploring the visualisation of sound through mark making. For my virtual artist residency at Basement Arts project I initiated an open call for people to join in the creation of an audio-visual collage. Participants were invited to create a drawing of the sounds they could hear around them and an audio recording in a location of their choice. The invitation was to use the act of making marks on paper as a way to tune into details in their sonic environment, listening for the textures, rhythms and locations of sound. I used the drawings to create a digital collage – a kind of ‘map’; and used the audio recordings as samples to create a sonic journey to accompany the image.
