Bioacoustic Variability
Bioacoustics as a means of data collection is a unique and developing field. Soundscape ecology allows for biological research through the application of biophonic sound intake (species identification, biodiversity estimations, etc.), but also presents the increasing intervention of anthropophonic sound and its implications.

“Bioacoustic Variability” examines birdsong recorded in Long Beach and in San Pedro’s White Point Nature Preserve. The reception of birdsong by the human ear has been studied and interpreted scientifically, recreationally, and spiritually. “Bioacoustic Variability” receives and manipulates this sound and the created environment, as human interference disrupts the natural and instinctive communication & processes of its organisms.
