Michael Ridge_Rose Thorn Bird Song

Rose Thorn Bird Song was featured in Kinokophonography Night at the British Library on Wednesday 27th May. Kinokophonography is a curated sound cinema event featuring audio works from around the world.

The piece responded to the theme of ‘disappearing sounds’ and was created from a hand-cranked cardboard turntable playing a 7” vinyl record of birdsong. A small rose branch and thorn (found in hedgerow) was utilised as a crude tone arm and stylus creating a very fragile and lo fi sound work.
