discovering a place through my ears- I am undertaking a multiyear audio recording project in Lost Cove thanks to my friends who own the this strange portion of the local landscape. It is a collapsed cave system that suits about half way between the plateau and the valley floor. Several different communities have occupied it over the last 100-200 years. After some consultation with David Haskell I am developing Raspberry Pi devices to record audio in unique ways that should provide the sound and patterns of movement of trees, soil, the animals that live there. Between these and my other mics I should be able to build an audio archive that delves deep into the place.
