Is that an animal’s voice I think I’m hearing?

Hidden Encounters is an interactive sound installation exploring the voices of animals that are Cypriot residents. Movement within the reach of a hidden ultrasonic range finder starts the playback of a recording of sounds made by one or another of these animals. The system may then attempt to engage listeners by further altering the loudness and/or the playback speed of the sound — as if the animal itself were volunteering to communicate.
Hidden Encounters is one of multiple installations and performances supported by the Interfaces Network, sponsored by the European University Cyprus, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
