Autumn Leaves – Sound and Environment in Artistic Practice
Autumn Leaves is a book about how sound encounters space and about how that encounter has been made visible, legible and, most importantly, audible.
The book draws together a number of different perspectives – from acoustics to architectural criticism to anthropology and beyond – and places these perspectives in conversation with others developed through creative practice.
Autumn Leaves includes essays by Bill Davies, Tobias Fischer, Steve Goodman, Tim Ingold, Helmi Jarviluoma, Rahma Khazam, Sylvain Marquis, Tom Rice, David Toop, Salome Voeglin and Hildegard Westerkamp.
These essays appear alongside interviews with Peter Cusack, Max Dixon, Christina Kubisch, Alvin Lucier and Chris Watson.
The reach of the book is further extended through the presentation of new translations and selections of the 100 Japanese Soundscapes and the 100 Finnish Soundscapes projects.
The artists whose work is represented in its pages include:
Mira Choi, Jem Finer, Charles Fox, Dan Holdsworth, Zoe Irvine, Cathy Lane, Nicholas Gansterer, Locus Sonus, NYSAE, Aki Onda, Axel Stockburger, the students of Srishti College Bangalore, Goran Vejvoda, Claudia Wegener and John Wynne & Tim Wainwright.
Field Recording and Soundscape Compilation
Autumn Leaves is an audio compilation that emerges out of a collaboration between Gruenrekorder and Angus Carlyle. The inspiration for the compilation derived from the book “Autumn Leaves: Sound and the Environment in Artistic Practice” – published by Double Entendre – which Angus Carlyle edited and Gruenrekorder contributed to.
The compilation presents an extremely wide-ranging exploration of the theme of sound and environment. You can hear everything from carefully crafted spoken word pieces, through compelling electro-acoustic compositions, to the purest forms of unedited and unsequenced phonography.
To immerse yourself in this compilation is to hear how others have heard the world and is a chance, perhaps, for you to hear your world in different ways.
