The Big Session, Leicester

June 2008

The Big Session is a music folk festival based in Leicester.
The recorded binaural audio has captured many features of the festival including the bands, singer/song writers, the audience cheering and clapping, people talking, joking, laughing and sharing gossip.

The level of volume from the music and crowds of people reveals the change in ambience as the listener is taken on a journey around the festival.

Please listen to The Big Session 2008 via stereo headphones.  Approx 3 mins

Lucy Stevens’ artistic practice examines the acoustic ecology of the natural environment, using field recording, digital illustration, performance and printmaking as a tool to visualise sound produced by wildlife, weather and other natural phenomena.
