Sound waves engage one of the human senses and provide information about our surroundings. In nature, sounds are perpetual and dynamic property of all landscapes, generated by geophony (nonbiological) or biophony (biological) sources. Indeed nature’s sounds influence our ability to connect with the natural world.
The project presents patterns of sounds of river.
An audio recorder was employed to capture the sound of river in a mountain area. The recorded sound was transformed into a digital spectrogram image by utilizing audio software. As a result, the spectrogram is translated into a pattern using the hand-knotted technique.
Sound of water is an abstract hand-knotted carpet. The work addresses how the sounds of nature enhanced people’s perception of environmental surroundings. The GPS coordinate indicate the location of the recorded sound.
