The box is installed close to a large Aleppo Pine of 10m height and 10m spread, at 600m from the Aegean Sea that hosts various bird species.
The stream box is placed on the North-West side on the island of Crete, 5km away from Chania city and hosted by the Flora & Fauna Preservation Park. The Park involves 30 hectares of native species and olive groves and belongs to the Technical University of Crete. Location and streaming are made possible by the synergy of the Flora & Fauna Preservation Park, the Technical University of Crete in collaboration with UK-based arts organisations FON and Soundcamp as part of the Creative Europe funded project Acoustic Commons.
The box is sited close to a large Aleppo Pine of 10m height and 10m spread, at 600m from the Aegean Sea that hosts various bird species.
At the site of streaming the sounds mostly heard are birds: at least 14 species of birds have been identified in the Flora & Fauna Preservation Park.
One can also hear people talking or the sounds of them running and sometimes vehicles. Heavy equipment can be heard in the background but not often. Strong winds are blowing throughout the seasons.
The streambox is sponsored by Soundcamp and FON as part of the CREATIVE EUROPE funded project 'Acoustic Commons' (2018-2022).
The streambox is installed and maintained by Dr Maria Papadomanolaki (Soundcamp) in collaboration with Dr Antonia Zacharouli (FFPP, TUC).
