Sound of Coal Mines


I grow up in the western part of the Czech, heavily impacted by coal mining activity. I realised that the view on the moon-like scenery on the surface mines is something rather extraordinary. Inspired by the World Soundscape Project of Raymond Murray Schafer, I decided to preserve the sound of this unique place. The vastness of this area required something more than a static recording to capture its character. I created a reactive sound installation – a room which translates all the sounds you create to sounds of the coal mines. I’ve used the interactive presentation to underline the fact that all of this is a result of human activity.
