Taking photographs provides a visual to show the places I’ve recorded environmental, natural and man-made sounds, to produce soundscapes.

The photographs are currently on exhibition at The Leicester Photographers gallery, until Monday 20 August and are part of a group exhibition with Leicester’s lo-fi photography group. Using colour slide film, the photos have been cross processed; a procedure associated with lo-fi photography, whereby a chemical solution intended for a different type of film is deliberately used to process photographic film.

The images show three locations in Leicester where I have taken sound recordings. The first is at the Rally canal with lots of hungry feral pigeons and a bread suit, the second at Embrace Arts, along their fire route to capture the sound of a dripping tap using a contact microphone and hydrophone. The last photograph shows the taxi rank on Humberstone Gate, featuring the taxi drivers opinion on the area they work in.

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.
