Music of Wires – part 2

This diagram & idea deserves its own post (thanks heaps to moongold for sharing!) – its a great site worth further investigation!

I can tell you right now, if I had followed in my Dads footsteps I would own a farm by now, but I also know my own character too well & if I had, all the fences would be like the one above. There was a great story in the rural area down south where I grew up of a slightly nuts proto-farmer who bought a farm there & when he did his fencing it appeared all the fence posts had been installed upside down, ie all the pointy bits were pointing skywards! No one had the heart to go dig up a fence post to find out if infact he had just decided to install the fence normally & then sharpen the exposed ends for some reason that escaped your normal farmer, but I totally enjoyed the idea of eccentric farming…. Ditto for someone who would build a jetty like this one:

It would seem inspired, but as you started to get dizzy when returning home with a dinner of fresh fish you would realise it was more creative than practical!
Land art, or environmental art (or whatever it is ‘correctly’ labelled by academia) intrigues the hell out of me, especially if it engages the sonic sense. So please do reccomend me the most interesting & inspiring environmental sound art you’ve either heard of (or preferably experienced) so I can add it to my future travel agenda…
