Sonic Advent Calendar 2016

glitterphones_web

This year sees the return of
the SARU sonic advent calendar.
The purpose of this year’s recorded revelations is to
meditate on what it means to hear or listen to a threshold
of some kind or the act of moving from space to space, so
that listening to each sound will be like opening the next flap on
the advent calendar you keep in the kitchen over the Christmas period.
