River Listening live streams in the Maroochy River for Reveil 2021 hosted by Arts Front.
River Listening is an interdisciplinary project exploring the possibilities of freshwater ecoacoustics in the conservation and management of global river systems. The project works at the intersection of art and science by investigating the cultural and biological diversity of freshwater ecosystems, through real-time listening and underwater recording used for biodiversity monitoring and public engagement. We use non-invasive recording techniques with accessible hydrophone kits and participatory workshops to engage local communities in the process and outcomes. The resulting database of hydrophone recordings is used for ongoing scientific research and diverse creative projects disseminated worldwide.
