Kalerne is starting the year 2017 with a few announcements...
KALERNE BOUTIQUE re-opened.
There can be found our publications and some distributed items.
The last releases are related to amphibians of French Guiana and bats of Taiwan.
Albums can also be found on Discogs or on Bandcamp.
Hoping to resume some nature sound recording practice, Yannick Dauby decided to reissue online his CD Songs of the Frogs of Taiwan Vol.1, which was published in 2009, and sold out since many years. It can be streamed and downloaded on Bandcamp.
Our next publication will be a travel to the mountains of low and middle altitude of the region of Yilan, in Taiwan.
Recorded between 2013 and 2015, the sounds of two forest area, Taipingshan 太平山 and Fushan 福山, are carefully selected and assembled into two soundscape compositions by Yannick Dauby. Thanks to the volunteers of Guandu Nature Park 關渡自然公園 and Soundscape Association of Taiwan 台灣聲景協會, we hope that this publication can help discovering and preserving the precious natural sound environments of Taiwan. The CD will be released in March 2017.
Last but not least, in March 2017, we will open a physical space devoted to sound. The KALERNE LISTENING ROOM will be hosted in the building of XUE-XUE Institute in Taipei, Taiwan. A simple but cozy place will propose to the visitors a good stereo systems for discovering sound works related to the favorite topics of Kalerne : field recordings, audio documentary and sound art, ecology and culture. We will announce next month the details and schedule of this exciting project.
