Faint Signals

British Library and Invisible Flock (UK)

Online from 10 November 2020


Looking ahead to Light Night Leeds 2021, which will explore the themes of nature and the environment, the British Library has commissioned Yorkshire-based interactive arts studio Invisible Flock to produce a new online digital artwork called Faint Signals, created from the vast archive of digitised nature sounds, held in the British Library Sound Archive.

Set in an imagined Yorkshire landscape, users can explore a vast 2D interactive space, in which each tile scrolled past unlocks a rich vein of sounds and abstract images, all of which are based on real life environments, with wildlife, weather and other nature sounds reflecting the diversity and complexity of ecosystems in the region.
