Curating Sound

Cheryl Tipp is the Curator of Wildlife and Environmental Sounds at The British Library. I spoke to her in the sound archive office and then we went down into the stores to look at some items in the collection. It turns out that wildlife sound recording and photography, although they had developed in similar ways, had paid little attention to one another. You are either one or the other apparently. Nevertheless, there are constant echoes across the disciplines, be it the role of amateur societies, or the strategies used by field recordists to record their lives in ways that will be meaningful, that I think will be of interest to photographers.
