The Store X The Vinyl Factory at 180 The Strand in collaboration with the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris, presents OTHER SPACES, a major immersive exhibition by London-based practice United Visual Artists (UVA), from October 2 to December 8, 2019. 

Released on vinyl for the first time by The Store X The Vinyl Factory and the Fondation Cartier, Bernie Krause’s soundtrack has been pressed onto two 180-gram heavyweight records, housed in a bespoke gatefold sleeve featuring installation imagery and graphics, with inner sleeves and inserts comprising information about these unique bioacoustic recordings and the environments they were captured in. 

Over the course of nearly fifty years, American bioacoustician Bernie Krause has collected more than 5,000 hours of recordings of natural habitats, including at least 15,000 terrestrial and marine species from all around the world. Contemplating the natural world as a poet, listening to animal vocalizations as a musician, the study of the acoustic organization of a particular ecosystem shows that at the heart of a soundscape each species spontaneously finds its own “acoustic niche.” Yet the observation of Bernie Krause’s soundscapes also reveals that the great animal orchestra, increasingly threatened by human activities, now risks being reduced to total and utter silence.
