Abstract / Summary

Framing Listening and the Phonosphere, was presented as part of the ‘Ubiquitous Sound Panel’ of the Bright Collisions Summit 2014. The invitation to present this talk came in response to Liminal’s award winning project Organ of Corti. At the time Frances Crow and David Prior had just completed their film Of This Parish and were beginning to develop the wider research theme of the changing role of bells in contemporary culture.

The presentation developed the research theme of framed listening explored in Liminal’s (Frances Crow and David Prior) award winning project Organ of Corti – an experimental instrument that recycles noise from the environment ¬– juxtaposing it with the notion of acoustic space as a phonosphere explored through Liminal’s project Of This Parish. Where Organ of Corti does not make any sound of its own, but draws attention to ubiquitous sounds already present in the environment, by framing them in a new way, Of This Parish takes as its starting point the idea of ‘parish’ as a phonosphere; a territory defined by the earshot of a bell.

Liminal’s film Of This Parish was also screened as part of the TodaysArt 2014 Festival
