canopy das árvores Daniel Blinkhorn

Consisting of a hugely diverse sonic palate, the Amazon basin supports around 30 percent of the world’s terrestrial species. To the observer and listener, this can result in an experience of manifold sonic dimension and expression, not to mention a universe of spectral detail, intrigue and surprise. Through travels in the Amazon, I hoped to capture material that would provide the foundations for a series of dramaturgical, radiophonic miniatures (or vignettes) observing aspects of life for a variety of fauna, flora and local inhabitants in the Amazon basin. in situ bacia is a series of six interlinking radiophonic miniatures reflecting my impressions of the forest. Each of the miniatures seek to convey a sense of multiple, varied sonic episodes couched within a larger framework, as with the individual and unique sound ecologies nestled within the surrounding forest. canopy das árvores – This is the 6th work in the suite and is a fictional observation made from the canopy, overlooking the river with boats, birdlife, insects and occasional mammals.
