Abstract

This series of short pieces extends the method of taking ‘aural selfies’ (Findlay-Walsh 2018) developed as part of a practice of sonic autoethnography. With each piece, experimental first-person field recording methods are used to capture the recordist’s proximity to the virtual space of headphones and headphone music. Through a layering and blurring of hyper-proximate field recordings and found music sources, listeners are placed ‘in the shoes’ of the recordist as they play on the boundary between their own listenership and the virtual spaces of digital music. Each piece presents an immersive aural encounter with the liminal space between personal reality and digital fantasy. These pieces build upon the author’s sound art practice and are presented for headphone listening and/or binaural playback.
