Sound is all around us all the time, in the environments we share with all other species and each other, also under water. Listening to an environment gives you essential information, and it can make you see better and notice creatures, issues and stories you might otherwise have missed.
 Jana will talk about field recording trips she has done to the Barents Sea, the North Pole, in the Tropics and in her back garden. She will also talk about how she is working with the sound to make installations, releases and concerts.
