Cost Of Wind
"The Cost of Wind is an audio-reactive, experimental short film that draws a contrast between the ultrasonic emissions of bats and the ecological effect of wind farms. It utilizes ultrasonic recordings of bat echolocation and emissions from wind turbines in combination with filmed footage to create an artistic representation of an ecological issue which is outside of the human perspective. Wind energy production datasets have also been utilised to process and manipulate these sound sources, allowing for the creation and development of textural and gestural content that reflects the connection between wind farms and bat mortality rates in the UK. The resulting visual output is a direct result of documented data and field recordings captured on site (Scout Moor Wind Farm, UK)."
