moss listening 

collaboration with Pheobe riley Law

Blankets, oceanic layers across place. Symbiotic colonisations, sonically intense, revealing their vast, shifting micro-environments.

Moss Listening features recordings (traces) of the inner sounds of common moss species, the soil horizons they maintain and myhychorizal shifts, recorded with self-built microphones. Organ tones mirror systems of circulation and flow, alongside performative objects and touch referencing climate stress and re-connection.

Hannah Pezzack's essay 'Under the Spell of the Sensuous' is now available via & features a response to 'moss listening' performed by myself & Pheobe at Sonic Acts

"The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a More-Than-Human World by David Abram is a defining text in ecological thought. Revisiting the seminal work nearly 30 years after it was published, Amsterdam-based British writer Hannah Pezzack explores its themes of animism, entanglement, and sensorial encounters."
