Surrounding the FoAM outpost on the edge of a forest, listen in on the chorus composed by multitudes of animate, inanimate and partially animate critters.
Dawn is alive with a multitude of voices, omnipresent but often too quiet to notice amidst the daily noise of human activity. In Vadediji, surrounding FoAM's outpost on the edge of a forest, we can listen in on the chorus composed by multitudes of animate, inanimate and partially animate critters.
FoAM is a network of transdisciplinary labs, roaming the interstices of art, science, nature & everyday life. Intermittently streaming from our Istrian outpost, a work-in-progress, a “refugium”, a place for ongoing departures and perpetual homecomings, for temporary respite or lifelong retreat.
From the last house on the edge of the village, two microphones point towards the fertile edge between wildflower meadows and a young oak forest. The forest persists in a pocket of lush greenery between two highways, one leading deeper into the Balkans, and the other towards the Italian peninsula. Further afield (beyond the forest and the scattered coastal towns) stretches the blue haze and the liminal murmur of the Adriatic.
This stream is part of Resonances, a series of sonic propositions suggesting varied entanglements with the Earth as a living instrument, audience and composition; the perpetual conversations of life talking amongst itself.
