Carey, M 2016, Data from: Deep in the forest, track 6. Southern Cross University. http://dx.doi.org/10.4226/47/5806ade17b6f8
The sixth sound track in a series of sound files produced as part of PhD thesis, titled 'Intermedia Frottage: visual representation of music & aural representation of image'.
Track 6 component sounds have been created from forest images, and composed as a soundscape, in correlation with the visual arrangement of the source images.
The forest has its own soundtrack, with the sounds of insects, trees sighing and creaking, and sounds of distant human activity drifting by on the wind. These, too, have been woven through the sound composition, and appear as spectrographic images in the visual score.
The scorebook was arranged as a series of short compositions, one to a page, with a bird-like call as a cue to turn the page. This is simulated in the movie by page-turn transitions.
The sound files are in a compressed format, and the full fidelity audio CD is available for loan with the exegesis from Southern Cross University Library (or from the creator). Similarly, the imagery is not available on the website collection, but a DVD or imagery is also available for loan with the exegesis from Southern Cross University Library (or from the creator).
