Rana Aurora (the Red-Legged Frog)
14 May 2016

How do we sonically account for the inaudible communication that surrounds us? The endangered Rana Aurora, or Northern Red-Legged Frog, lives on the West coast of Canada and has a unique call that can only be heard underwater.

This piece uses underwater field recordings from Vancouver Island, pairing the sounds of the Rana Aurora with that of the human-constructed radio broadcast signal. It explores the sounds that surround us everyday, but that we fail to recognize.
