Combine Japanese for mushroom (Kinoko) or a child (Ko) with Russian for cinema (Kino) and add a microphone, recording device (phone) and you get – Kinokophone. Behind that name is an artist duo consisting of Amanda Belantara and Jon Tipler who bring their passion for sounds to a wider audience on an event called Kinokophonograhy. The aim of the event is to provide a platform for those interested in field recordings to share and discuss their work. There really isn’t anything like it in MaDLab and the group creating inspiring soundscapes stands out. There is so many interesting recordings that almost never get heard – MadLab happily provides a venue to change that.
