LIVE STREAM - Flora & Fauna Preservation Park, TUC, Chania
The new microphone is nested on a large Aleppo Pine of 10m height and 10m spread, adjacent to the Flora and Fauna Preservation Park Museum. The Park involves 30 hectares of native species and olive groves and belongs to the Technical University of Crete. Location and streaming are made possible by the synergy of the Flora & Fauna Preservation Park, the Technical University of Crete in collaboration with UK-based arts organisations Octopus Collective and Soundcamp as part of the Creative Europe funded project Acoustic Commons.
At the site of streaming the sounds mostly heard are birds: at least 14 species of birds have been identified in the Flora & Fauna Preservation Park.
One can also hear people talking or the sounds of them running and sometimes vehicles. Heavy equipment can be heard in the background but not often. Strong winds are blowing throughout the seasons.
