Scuttling around in the shallows

Last night I went to listen to a soundscape compostion by Jana Winderen at the Project Issue Room in Gowanus, Brooklyn.
This evening was part of Issue Project Room’s Sonic Unconscious series. From IPR’s website:

In Scuttling around in the shallows, Winderen will continue her investigation into the sound of shrimp, exploring how the smallest creatures of the ocean use sound for communication, orientation, and feeding. Hydrophones—originally a military development—are repurposed, inadvertently producing unexpected qualities not informed by their original design.

It was a wonderful composition and I look forward to hearing more of her work.

You can listen to an MP3 sample of her work here.

Gowanus time-lapse

I played around with time-lapse on the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn yesterday and am not entirely pleased with the results.   It was mid-afternoon. I should probably go back later in the day when the light is better.  There’s a lot still to learn about this process.
