This page contains a few location-based field recordings I made throughout the West Indies, along with one or two videos and a few composition excerpts using the field recordings (special thanks to EcoSono for enabling the recordings!):
here’s a hermit crab colony I almost fell into off the coast of Bonaire, it was that small, but the sounds upon lowering a mic…!
and her’s a creative composition I made from the recording entitled ‘hermetica’ the URL will take you to a vimeo 3D experiment I created to react to the sounds
here’s a bird sanctuary in Trinidad, the sounds from the sanctuary inspired their usage in the creative composition below;)
and here are the wonderful birds in another creative work I composed, ‘le son de la lumière’, a homage to composer Luc Ferrari…
here’s a link to the website of the remarkable composer Luc Ferrari, where you can hear the entire work, and read the program note…: PRESQUE RIEN Prize 2011 (under the section ‘PRESQUE RIEN Prize 2011’)
In Puerto Rico I spent several hours undertaking soundwalks…
it’s a very vibrant and sensuous place for sounds, with lots of auditory delights on offer!
bamboo, birds and breeze…arrrr the wonderful
recordings captured in St George on the island of Grenada
Finally, whilst undertaking these recordings
I was the ABC National Media-Artist-in-Residence
and so created a full length CD collection of 19 ‘miniatures’
from the region entitled ‘terra subfónica’…(I’ve referenced it in the ‘sTuFf’ & ‘rEleAsEs’ sections of the site)
It’s a funny little release and not what I would ordinarily do, but was a lot of fun to make…;) you can hear a couple of excerpts of it here on soundcloud…:
