Deep Listening Soundscapes

Sonica 2019

Look carefully: among the plants and flowers on either side of the path, strangely shaped speakers have sprung up, resembling the bogbean plants that grow in peat bogs. From them come Kathy Hinde’s Deep Listening Soundscapes, compositions based around sounds recorded below the surface of the Flow Country by submerged microphones called hydrophones.

Originally presented at Cryptic’s Below the Blanket, part of The Peatlands Partnership’sFlows to the Future Project (with RSPB Scotland as lead partner) and supported by: The Hugh Fraser Foundation

Part of Art & Nature at Sonica, a series of compelling works inspired by the Scottish landscape – and showing it as you’ve never seen it before

Concept, design and build: Kathy Hinde
