Kinokologue 1: sonic specimen – Review

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Kinokologue 1 is an installation by Kinokophone. Kinokophone is a sound and storytelling collective, producing work for installations, sound for documentary films, ethnographic research, oral history projects and anything else they think is interesting and fun! Through working on so many projects, they have amassed a large collection of recordings. Many of the recordings are used in a particular project, while others remain stored forever on stacks of hard drives, waiting to be heard… So Kinokophone started to imagine how they could possibly go about creating an interactive physical archive of all these sounds, so that other people could explore and enjoy them. This is where the idea for Kinokolouge came about and with funding provided by the Cornerhouse Micro Commissions and support from the Paul Hamlyn foundation, they could begin to experiment with their sonic specimen… (more…)

Over time we’ve gathered a collection of sounds from around the world; little universes captured digitally onto plastic cards. In an exploration of this immense, continuously changing and growing archive of sound spores, we are creating an organised catalogue of all of our sounds. We aim to bring parts of this collection together in an installation that explores sounds as objects of value, or unique records of time and place that are worth recording, preserving and displaying. As sound recordists, we wish to address the associations between the initial motivation in collecting a sound and its value as an individual memory, free from fulfilling a specific role within a given project. We want to share our collections and present our research findings by creating an interactive and engaging work for everyone to enjoy.

Thanks to a kind award from Cornerhouse Micro Commissions the Kinokophone mycelium of sound spores takes life in the form of Kinokologue 1: Sonic Specimen Boxes. We are also happy to announce that we are collaborating with Akiko Yanagimoto who is responding to our collection of sounds through her embroidery work.
