Sparśa is a soundscape art piece I created from audio recordings of biophony and geophony taken from Gatineau National Park, Canada in the summer of 2019.

The piece was initially exhibited in a gallery, paired with a kinetic drawing that had a swivel mechanism mounted on the back so that it may be turned and viewed, sensed, or interpreted at different angles while listening to the soundscape through headphones.

The original version can be accessed on Soundcloud:
