Open microphone Rožnik Hill

Cona set up its first open microphone in April, in collaboration with the Tivoli, Rožnik and Šiška Hill Landscape Park. The installation is part of a broader, international project under the guidance of the Acoustic Commons network.

Acoustic Commons presents five new permanent live environmental audio streams that draw attention to the unique sounds of particular places across Europe and beyond. Sited in tucked-away corners of London, Ljubljana, Cumbria, Crete and AiMarseille. Launching in April 2021, the streams are available to listen to at Acoustic Commons website and the Locus Sonus sound map.

Open microphone Rožnik Hill:

Live stream from urban forest of Ljubljana relays a sound of landscape park with city noise and nerby human an nonhuman spicies. An open microphone is placed under the canopy of magnificent beeches and spruces on the slope of the Rožnik hill. As we were setting up the open microphone, a roe deer came to visit us. Deer families, various small rodents, squirrels and as many as 68 different species of birds are typical inhabitants of this urban forest. Microphone location is not far from Steklenik gallery for sound, bioacoustics and art, located in the space of Tivoli greenhouse where Cona produces exhibitions and events dedicated to sound and bio acoustic art works and installations, thus acting as some kind of extended dislocated gallery aural sensor.

April streams:

– South Walney Nature Reserve, Walney Island, Cumbria, UK
– Frioul Islands, The Bay of Marseille, France.
– Tivoli, Rožnik and Šiška Hill Landscape Park Ljubljana, Slovenia
– Stave Hill Ecological Park, London, UK
– Flora & Fauna Preservation Park, Chania, Crete, GR

The Acoustic Commons is an emerging network of live environmental streams which draw attention to the unique sounds of particular places across Europe and beyond. Over the next three years, the Acoustic Commons will develop work between Full of Noises (Barrow, Cumbria – lead partner), Locus Sonus (Aix-Marseille), CONA (Ljubljana), Soundcamp (London), Hellenic Mediterranean University (Crete) and Cyberforest (Tokyo). As the project proceeds, it will involve events, workshops and creative actions outside conventional cultural spaces, focusing on sounds as intangible resources which can be shared.
