The Kinokophone collective provides a space for field recordists to share interesting sounds recorded from everyday and is open to those outside the entertainment industry to join in and listen to the unique collection and array of sounds on offer. People can come together and enjoy a collective listening experience, from anthropologists to designers to sound artists.

Last Thursday I spent the evening in the Northern Quarter immersed in strange sounds and unusual storytelling. ‘Kinokologue 1: Sound spore’, a temporary sound art installation in the exhibition space at MadLab, was the culmination of a Cornerhouse/ Paul Hamlyn Foundation Micro Commission, followed by Kinokophonography upstairs, a regular listening event which showcases sounds sent in from all over the world.

Over time we’ve gathered a collection of sounds from around the world; little universes captured digitally onto plastic cards. In an exploration of this immense, continuously changing and growing archive of sound spores, we are creating an organised catalogue of all of our sounds. We aim to bring parts of this collection together in an installation that explores sounds as objects of value, or unique records of time and place that are worth recording, preserving and displaying. As sound recordists, we wish to address the associations between the initial motivation in collecting a sound and its value as an individual memory, free from fulfilling a specific role within a given project. We want to share our collections and present our research findings by creating an interactive and engaging work for everyone to enjoy.
Thanks to a kind award from Cornerhouse Micro Commissions the Kinokophone mycelium of sound spores takes life in the form of Kinokologue 1: Sonic Specimen Boxes. We are also happy to announce that we are collaborating with Akiko Yanagimoto who is responding to our collection of sounds through her embroidery work.
