I've Barely Been Here

Sound artist Chris Kallmyer created a series of installations at the Headlands Center of the Arts. He collected objects from the rocky landscape of the Marin Headlands, both sound-objects and rock-objects, for one of the pieces titled "Objects found in a place."



Will Schrimshaw's Ur-Writings seek to trace "the auto-affective inscriptions of the earth upon itself".  Like a needle to a groove of vinyl, Schrimshaw is working on "a systematic means of listening to the earth surface and subterranean ruptures by way of tracing its various inscriptions."  The Museum of Acoustic Geology is pleased to re-broadcast these tracings collected in Schrimshaw's research studio based in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Denmark branch opening soon

Rock Radio by Guus Oosterbaan
The Museum of Acoustic Geology is pleased to announce a new branch opening soon in Copenhagen, Denmark.  Our Danish curator is pleased with the collection largely based on works of concrete.  MoAG Denmark will also be organizing bunker tours in collaboration with Atlantikwal-Denmark.   This continental network of bunkers is so far the most enduring example of concrete sound sculpture.

Forthcoming exhibition

Work by the Sardinian sculptor Pinuccio Sciola. These rocks have been carved to produce resonant sounds when rubbed by the hand or by other rocks.

The Hadean

The Hadean eon began with Earth's formation about 4.6 billion years ago and ended roughly 3.8 billion years ago. Hades is the Greek word for "Underworld," referring to conditions surmised on Earth at that time.

Listen to The Hadean eon by following these instructions.

1. Line the Dogleg Tunnel with flame throwers.
2. Seal both ends of the tunnel.
3. Fill the tunnel with a composition of 70% Carbon Dioxide, 11.5% Methane gas, 8.2% Hydrogen gas, 7% Water Vapour, and 3.3% of a noble gas of your choice.
4. Ignite the flame throwers and heat the tunnel atmosphere to 230 degrees Celsius.
5. With megaphones and microphones on each end, have a conversation with a friend through an atmosphere four billion years old.

The Miocene

The Miocene was named by Sir Charles Lyell and is derived from the Greek words μείων (meiōn, “less”) and καινός (kainos, “new”) and means "less recent"
