Since the birth of audio recording in the 19th century, people have used the technology to capture the ambient sounds of our world for later playback. With the invention of high-quality, portable tape recorders in the 1960s, field recording evolved into its own art form. Now, all of us carry high-quality digital recorders in our pockets and myriad sound artists continue to push the form forward. Good field recordings have the power to transport us and, sometimes, attune our own senses so that we too listen more actively to our own experiences in the world. In this short documentary “Sound Fields,” director Sam Campbell introduces us to contemporary field recordists who are masters at active listening and share what they hear with all of us.

There are certain kinds of music that cry out for the technology.
Stereo Mic 1: Oscar Peterson alike Jazz-pickup im inneren des Flügels, Stereo Mic 2: diskret à la Deutsche Grammophon (“nice view from the balcony”), Stereo Mics 3/4 für den räumlichen Anteil. Und so gibt es analog zum Kinofilm verschiedene Möglichkeiten: “long shot, tight shot, wide angled shot, close-up”.

The Dark Web Map is a visualization of the structure of Tor’s onion services, a.k.a. hidden services, a.k.a. the dark web. The map consist of 6,608 dark web sites crawled during January 2018. Each site is represented in the map as a screenshot, and sites with structural similarity are connected with a line. Groups of sites that are all similar to each other are arranged into clusters. You can move around the map and zoom in to areas of interest.
Today’s Astronomy Picture of the Day is an interactive closeup of Saturn’s rings. The image was taken by the Cassini probe in 2017. Now it’s been sonified with harp sounds, with the pitch of each ring determined by its shade -the lighter rings have higher pitches. You can pluck the rings with your mouse, either individually with a click or drag your cursor across for a lovely sound. If you have a touch screen, you can try playing it like a piano keyboard. Or just toggle the automatic mode to watch the spacecraft play on its own. You can also shift to a minor key if you like.
