Flutterances

Flutterances

Flutterances is a public arts research project, created by jane Pitt. Using as a base the phonetic description of bird sounds that are found in field guides it is aimed at developing a method of creating a rhythmic vocal response to the sound of bird song in our public spaces.

In partnership with the RSPB Jane is inviting the public to experience their local open spaces with fresh ears during “Listening Walks” led by her and an expert from the RSPB. Using the phonetic descriptions of the songs of the birds identified at each site as a starting point Jane will co-devise a performance poem, with the participants, exploring the possibility of sound to translate the ephemeral elements of our everyday landscapes & soundscapes.
