  • pondering on visual responses to my neighbours sound activities  I feel I have entered Breathstay 2 - with the concept of linear frequencies resonating strongly .. sound as a line ..a wave..and extension forward
     
  • listenting intensely this morning failed to bring up any noises of said neighbour .. only a faint crash of a door indicating he has left home ... ahhh silence
  • filled however with a variety of bird chatter , songs of up s and downs and to's and fro's , overlying, underpinning yet always linear ..little bursts forward , outward, upward
  • I spent 3 sets of 15 minutes listening out .. focussing only on the bird song and nothing else that may have penetrated into my awareness 
  • There were sounds I recognised, bird songs that replied to each other, little chitters and chatters, sounds that I got surprised by and sounds that were somehow harmonious to me
  • I identified 2 that I liked a lot .. I dubbed them " Chatterbird"  and " Melodious Bird "
  • I am not a birdwatcher or know much about bird song, but somehow I like it that way .. they remain new, fresh , unattached to any emotionally perceived ideas .. and so I ponder

  • These patterns look like ancient script to me , I can " read" them as it were and it goes something like this : " Bird who always screeches loudly in threes ::: Bird that pitches high but finishes low ::: Bird that starts in sets of 3 and finishes on harmonious twirl ::: Bird that sings in waves of current ::: Bird that sharply overshadows everyone ::: Bird that whispers furiously etc
  • These sounds are uttered , sang loudly, hummed quietly yet all leave a linear residue in my mind
  • Linear Residue = Linear Remnant ... just a hint of what sound played, a sense of the sequence, yet the visual line gives a distinct impression of the quality, the nature of that sound to me even if I can remember or sing it fully recalled
  • A thought -- If I chose a favourite line ...lets say " Melodic Bird" and repeat it how would it differ if I hum the sound inside my head while I draw it repeatedly compared to reciting the timestable inside my head whilst drawing it ... let see

  • there is a definite harmonious feeling to the pattern I created when humming the sound , softer lines , swung freely, kind of dancing almost
  • I noticed that I chose to go vertical lines rather than horizontal lines ..I dont know why but the sounds seem to present themselves that way
  • I will attempt to draw them horizontally maybe to see whether it has a different quality to the lines, here the sounds somehow seem stacked rather than lined up ... a motion that goes up and down at the same time rather than progressively along for me


  • On my evening walk I managed to record one of the bird songs I had earlier that day ...




  • as well as one of the helicopters returning to base





  • if you care to participate in this study I would love to see how you would interpret each of these songs using only drawn line 
  •  ... if you do have a go, leave a comment with a link to your blog where you posted the results
