A surround sound installation composed using sounds that have either disappeared or are close to extinction. During 2003, the artist, Robert Jarvis, responded to the replies to about 500 'Wanted - Endangered Sounds' posters that he put up around Kent (in the southeast of England) recording the sounds, and then manipulating and scoring them using Kyma. Visitors to the installation walk over a 'carpet' listing an array of endangered sounds and into the midst of the surround composition. The work aims to draw the listeners' attention to the transient nature of aspects of our soundscape and invites them to (re)consider their relationship to it.
