4 Ears recordings have been developed by O+A as part of their sonic artistic research. Two experienced listeners equipped with binaural microphones (in their ears) walk and listen to a territory / site. This recording will reveal in a four speaker playback situation, a hyper-reality of the auditory situation of the territory / site.
The idea of 4 ears recordings is to be able to study the embedded information and the aesthetic of a site / territory. The unique capacity to listen deep into these information rich auditory fields is Playback.
4 ears recordings have become O+A’s first research tool in studying living environments. It is now their primary modus operandi for studying the relationship between the built environment and the sound events that occurr within it.
heres my new paragraph.
4 ears recordings have become for O+A powerful performance tools in bringing audiences into a more profound listening situation to understand both their work, and the sound world that they inhabit.
