Snorescape

DinahBird
24.5.2.7.

A snorecast… An eleven hour non stop international sonic survey of snores, grunts, dribbling and whatever else we do as we slumber the night away. Recorded all over the world, from Paris to Tasmania, Copehagen t o Italy and broadcast during the Biennale de Sao Paolo 2012.

A State of Slumber is the first edition of the world snorescape project, a snorecast compiled and edited by DinahBird. It produced for Knut Auferman and Sarah Washington's Mobile Radio Sao Paolo, a three month radio art station created for the 30th São Paulo Biennial, 2012.

Thank you to the sleeping souls who took part in the first ever (to my knowledge) snorescape. Snores have been recuperated and donated by the following people: Valérie Vivancos, Julia Drouhin, Ward Weis, Etienne Noiseau, Carlo Giordani, JP Renoult, Rodolphe Alexis and Marianne Decoster-Taivalkoski.
