Sound Matters episode 6
SNOWFLAKES & METAL HAMMERS
What’s the sound of snow falling? This might sound like a riddle or the start of some joke, but for composer and sound designer Yann Coppier snow and ice are rich materials for making sounds and art. In this episode of our Sound Matters podcast series, host Tim Hinman focuses his ears on the specialist field of sound art – meeting and speaking with Coppier about his time recording in Greenland and how he makes those sounds part of his art, and Jacob Kirkegaard whose interest in the sounds of Chernobyl, the inner ear and Ethiopian metal hammers informs his own artistic practice.
