I went looking for a sound for a jingle & found Felix Blume, sound artist & sound engineer. A fortuitous accident, as I listened to his work I realised that while sound is all around me I hadn't really been listening to it. Click the audio player to listen to our conversation.
Felix collaborated with Sara Lana on a sound piece called Mutt Dogs. vira-latas or dump tippers stray dogs offer their canine listening abilities in conjunction with human cohabitation. As a dog, you love rummaging through dumpsters, looking for something to eat; you bark when a motorcycle passes by; you run after cars invading your territory; you dash in and out of houses; and you explore abandoned fields. This piece offers a ground level sonic walk, binaurally recorded by dogs in a recent urbanized neighbourhood close to Belo Horizonte in Southeast Brazil. You can listen to it here
