The Whitworth presents Kinokophonography, a curated night of what they call ‘sound cinema’. This free event celebrates the sounds that surround us by showcasing beautiful and unusual works. These field recordings, which often come from the far reaches of the globe, reveal truths about the world we live in. There will be discussions about how the recordings were made and what we can learn from them. The event is organised by the Kinokophone Collective, a group of audiophiles who produce installations, documentaries and oral history projects. The group’s name comes from ‘kinoko’, which is the Japanese word for mushroom, chosen because mushrooms have intricate, unseen connections that are beneath the surface. Kinokophonography is part of the Whitworth’s Thursday Lates series of cultural events, where every week there is a different concert, performance, talk or screening to enjoy after work.

Thu 8 Oct, The Whitworth, The University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester, M15 6ER, 6.30pm – 8pm. Tel: 0161 275 7450, FREE,
