The sounds are originally mixed in 7.1, sounds are distributed and spatialized between the speakers, but you can listen to the audio in stereo here :
You can read the abstract (in French) >> http://lemondeautre.fr/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/SCHUH_Diane_MurmuringBarks_InstallationSonore.pdf
The sound installation « Murmuring Barks » is the attempt to immerse the listener in a tiny and modest universe. The goal is to bring the listener to attentive and contemplative listening of the so called « marginal » universes of waste-lands whose sonic richness is to be discovered and to be revealed. This was made through an ecological approach which abolishes the border between « Nature » and « Culture » and gives back its place to non-humans.
This is also why I wanted to quote a (non-exhaustive) part of the beings who participated to the making of the installation and its ecosystem:
