Presenting and launching this new version of Twitchr at Sound:Site Sonic Arts Festival, was a great success.

I presented a short talk to introduce the concept of the piece, and gave an overview of its history and development. Thankfully, the rain held off long enough for us to go out to record some birdsong, and then upload it onto the map. You will find a cluster of audio uploads on the twitchr map around South Hill Park, Bracknell. (West of London, in between the M4 and M3).

We were joined on the walk by Marlies, a warden for South Hill Park, and fortunately very knowledgeable about birds. She pointed out which birds were calling, and why they might be making certain calls.

Here are a selection of photos from the walk.
