Project Overview

Phonography is an artistic and poetic project that presents in a contemplative way sound and visual snapshots of different ecosystems of our planet.

Phonography is a project related to “Field Recording” and  “Audio Naturalism “. We will focus mainly on wilderness, unspoilt places, where wildlife predominates and where animals are free. We hope to aware our societies about the beauty of mother nature and the preservation of the different biotopes of our planet.

Phonography is also the witness of our time, capturing these “sound photographies” highlighting the biodiversity of wildlife, flora but also human, culture and civilizations.

 

We have been working on this project since 2016 (itinerary, budget, equipment …) and we are launching it for the summer of 2018: we have transformed a 4×4 mobile utility van that allow us to move on offroad tracks, in remote and wild places. We also equipped ourselves with sound recording equipment, making it possible to capture in professional quality the natural atmospheres we are going through, as well as specific recording gear for capture animal sounds. The image will be captured using two small HD camera, traditional and 360 °.

For this first attempt, we plan to cross the Americas fduring one year, from north to south, from Alaska to Ushuaia. The route will follow closely the “Pan-American Highway“. Indeed, this route will allow us to cross most of the biotopes and ecosystems of the planet. (Tundras, boreal forests, mixed and temperate forests, steppes, deserts, tropical rainforests, Andean highlands, glaciers, grasslands, etc …)
