Landscapes {Soundscapes: Dronestrikes on Saturn

Laura Plana Gracia

Abstract.

Dronestikes on Saturn is the collaboration in between raxil4 and his Nameless Is Legion, an audio work that uses reverb laden drones with pedals, sine generators and a four track with loop tapes of some fine recordings or sonifications of the Saturn radio waves recorded near the poles of the planet via the Cassini spacecraft. It is a media ecology audio work offering an ethical composition and an aesthetical piece for preservation of the space, the urban space or the outer space, where these waves have been captured. In this case, preservation laws could develop a strong policy to facilitate the research for audio work in the conservation of sound as (eco)system.

Keywords: audio work, drones, generators, sonifications, waves, media ecology, soundscapes, sound ecosystem, landscape, sonic landscape
