SOGS #5: Bunnies

Date recorded: August 4, 2013
Time: 4:30 pm
Location:  42°16’5.89″N, 74°34’41.89″
Notes: Yeah, yeah . . . bunnies are adorable. These four munched, groomed and fought over carrots (not kidding) for an hour in the yard on a Sunday afternoon. From a sound meditation perspective, this was my best sogs yet. I was didn’t want the bunnies to jump out of their pen, so I was very alert. And a more attuned listener.


SOGS #2: The Silo and the Swallows

Date recorded: July 31, 2013
Time: 7:45 pm
Location: 42°16’6.42″N,  74°34’41.06″W
Notes: Also present: finches and pigeons. My fellow artist in residence, Sybille, said this was a good time to record the birds. They would be scurrying around before night time. Also: am I crazy, or does one of these birds sound like a puppy?
