The Embassy of the North Sea seeks to give a voice to the non-human residents in The Netherlands’ most defining ecosystem, the North Sea, starting with a listening phase that engages designers, policy makers, biologists, artists, lawyers, philosophers and writers. Rewire 2021 will present the first step of the journey: a sound expedition titled ‘Hearing Like a Herring’, developed by composer and sound artist Harpo ‘t Hart together with radio-maker Jesper Buursink and artist Xandra van der Eijck. This intervention at Scheveningen harbour and beach features stories from experts, scientists, and local residents to present new undersea listening perspectives.
There will be a number of sessions running (see below), each lasting an hour. Reserve your timeslot here: https://www.eventbrite.nl/e/tickets-hearing-like-a-herring-by-embassy-of-the-north-sea-168935912863

At the Rewire 2021 offline edition, Barbara Ellison presents ‘Forest Phantoms’, an audio-headphone composition of tree ‘songs’ made with binaural microphones, contact mics and hydrophones, revealing an intense and intriguing hidden music of the forest. ‘Forest Phantoms’ is made exclusively with original environmental recordings done in the Haagse Bos, Den Haag. This composition was created and conceived to be listened to at a chosen location in The Haagse Bos. Listeners will first gather at the google maps location point and will then be led to the listening location for the piece and headphones and players will be provided.
