Favoriting March 13, 2012: Andrew Sharpley - Red Herring - for Radio Boredcast


A few years ago I discovered a backwater of the internet dedicated to the study of fish communication. A group of academics have, for the past forty or more years, dedicated their professional lives to understanding how fish communicate, and to classifying their language by sound types. This broadcast presents some digitally manipulated variations on these recordings, mainly cod. Those who are further interested should consult Rodney Rowntree's website at www.fishecology.org/soniferous/soniferous.htm

Andrew Sharpley is perhaps best known as 1/4 then 1/2 of UK sampling unit Stock Hausen and Walkman, formed in 1991, they achieved what they had been working towards in 2001 by splitting up. Relocating to France, Andrew then spent the next ten years undertaking commissions, or playing in bands, from animation festivals to jazz festivals to arts festivals in champagne cellars, by way of wi-fi broadcasts in cars and too many hours spent in vans. His return to the UK in 2O11 found him back where he started, and more productive for it. He presents these two broadcasts," slow" and " red herring", as evidence, although for what, is as yet unclear.
