THE WIRED LAB is an artist led organisation evolving interdisciplinary art practices in rural Australia. We create opportunities for the research, production and presentation of projects that connect international and local artists with communities in new ways. Our curated programs and projects involve artists working from a regional context whilst producing outcomes of local and global relevance. Our activities range from skills development for young people, seniors, emerging and mid career artists, to the creation, presentation, publication and promotion of new works and major live arts projects.

Bioacoustics and Wires

WIRED Lab – Bioaeolian I (2008)

The tapping/clicking sounds appear sparsely throughout the recording, very slight sounds, listen closely to hear them. The bioacoustic sounds are very similar to rustling and crackling, and also have certain similarity to aspects of the rain recordings (e.g. the light clicking sounds made by very small raindrops hitting the piezo pickups directly). Best heard over loudspeakers as the aeolian tones go down to very low frequencies. Recorded on the Wogarno Wires during the Tura Sounds Outback Festival, Australia 2008.

WIRED Lab – Flying V Animal (2010)

This recording taken from the eastwest wire of the Flying V. This sound is most likely a bird perching on the wire. It gives a good idea of the delay line / reverb effect from such a large scale single wire span.
