This is a sketch for a work I am developing around felines and sound. Under the aegis of my ongoing project, écriture féline, I’ve been studying the kinds of sounds that seem interesting to cats, the kinds of sounds that are not, and the kinds of sounds cats produce. This work invites listeners to inhabit a space featuring an immersive feline soundscape.
