Composed and Produced by Sami El-Enany
A Falling Tree Production for 'Short Cuts' for the episode 'Silence'.
First broadcast on Radio 4 on Tuesday 18th May 2021
'The Inaudible Spectrum' is made entirely from a process of bringing sounds that are authentically outside of the range of human hearing within it. It seeks to question the notion of silence and sound through dismantling human-centric forms of perception and allowing listeners to perceive aspects of reality that are usually inaccessible.
All sounds are first-hand field recordings from around the world and include:
-Recordings of bats made in Senegal using a supersonic microphone
-Faint atmospheric events in VLF radio bands captured with magnetic antenna
-Extremely faint vibrations in material and soil, recorded using a geophone.
-Pitch shifting subsonic and supersonic information recorded at extremely high sample rates.
First heard on Falling Tree Production's 'Short Cuts: Silence' broadcast on Radio 4 on Tue 18 May 2021.
