Birds within

The project was developed in the Medialab Prado in Madrid in sommer 2010. Radio recordings of satellite telemetry and transmissions were first recorded and classified. Afterwards we programmed a 3D audio architecture which allows the different sound loops to be assigned to digital representations of satellites which orbits and velocities are scaled down to fit the local space of the listener. This kind of soundscape aims to underline the immediacy of outer space activity, its influence in personal and communal spaces, as well as the possibility to enhance the experience of it by juxtaposing analog and digital media resources with social processes of observation and urban wandering.
