18. radiOM.org - Turkey Song [5.063% Popularity: 0.00000]
Turkey Song Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 62 min Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA “Turkey Song” is a form of inter-species music; a joint communication between three human beings and three hundred tom (male) turkeys. The tape that is presented here is an edited version of over five hours of tapes recorded at the Willie Bird Turkey Farm in the hills outside of Santa Rosa. The producer of this piece, Jim Nollman, has experimented with musical communication with various animals for many years. Besides turkeys, he has found that the bobwhite, the kangaroo rat, hummingbird, and the bullfrog all respond in definite patterns to certain types of human and instrumental sounds. But of all the animals, the most obviously receptive creature to audio stimulus is the turkey. Turkeys respond with a precise rhythmic gobble to any pitch above a certain register. The pitch is relative and is dependent upon the environmental noise already present. It thus becomes possible to devise extremely precise me...
