Murmur. A derive. The Alisios winds move the forest. I am searching for quiet places. I record what I find. Generally we don't accept the noisy presence of the field recorder him or herself. It is annoying and takes us out of the soundscape in the same way as that of a microphone appearing above the frame in a bad movie. However, when working with derives, or drifts, I accept my own impact on the site and reveal the reality of the creative process. We chose and create the boundaries of our sonic environment.
Recorded in Anaga Natural Park Tenerfie and Meriga Dam, La Gomera.
