From the sounds of the arctic circle to the desert and many other acoustic ecologies found between these points, with this new work sound art Colin Black explores a type of sonic trigonometry which challenges our concepts relating to the angles and distances between the chosen sites. The aim is to create a new geospatial perspective that investigates a re-contextualisation of place and places as not being fixed but rather in constant flux within themselves and with each other that regularly needs to be retriangulated.

The goal of this sonic trigonometry is to transmute the notion of the insulated local ecology, so as to reconceptualise the local as a dynamic integral element that is intimately and ultimately connected to other global environments. This sonic trigonometry will also be combined with deft musical compositions and other sound effects that subtly and gradually throughout reveals human activity encroaching these spaces. This treatment and collision of sound elements aims to brings focus to and amplifiers the Anthropocene framed from within the changing perspectives of the various acoustic ecologies.
