Ming Studios Reading & Ambient Nature Sounds of Oregon Caves National Monument

3 B Sound Map

This week I got to read multidisciplinary poetry about Oregon Caves National Monument as part of Ming Studios 7 o’clock performance series.

I showed photographs and played ambient sound recordings I took in May 2019 in the park while reading poetry to create a multifocal experience.

The poetry, photos, and sounds are part of an ongoing project that seeks to create multi-sensory maps of nature.

I’m including three of the sound recordings here because they are pretty interesting on their own.

They are of birds singing along Cave Creek, a Pacific wren’s returning to its nest above the 110 cave entrance to feed its chicks, and water sounds at the deepest part of the cave (225 feet below the surface).
