This is a contact-mic recording of a long fence in coastal Croatia. Wind is resonating the metal wires, interrupted by the voices of children and the constant subtle rhythm of cicadas.
This recording is part of my ongoing practice of “auscultation”: listening to the vibrations of objects and underwater environments, revealing hidden interiors like a doctor’s stethoscope probing the systems of the body. This helps me to consider my relationship to the more-than-human as I stretch my ears to practice other ways of listening, communicating, and inhabiting the world.
