Binaural is a term used to describe the method of recording sound using tiny microphones placed inside the ears or mounted onto the side of a dummy’s head. When the recording is played back through headphones, the result provides the listener with a realistic representation of the
space the sounds were original captured in.
This event is part of the All Around You season of sound art events heard during the autumn season in and around Bristol.

V.I.: BRISTOL CHANNEL
ARNOLFINI DARK STUDIO, SAT 21 & SUN 22 NOV, 12 – 6pm FREE
Sept 2009, V.I. sets out with a sound system on an environmental tour of the sea region of the Bristol Channel. The project aims to investigate its physical and emotional properties and examine its effects on sonic outputs and processes. Performances will be made for and at chosen sites along the Channel, taking into account the unique acoustic map of each site, incorporating their varying aesthetic, sonic, atmospheric, practical and logistical features, amplifying the rhythms of sea and shore – with or without a human audience. At the November event, V.I. will present the results using sound and image collected on the tour.
