The source material for this piece are several field recordings i made over the years that i didn’t find good enough to present as field recording on their own, but which still did contained a lot of interesting sonic material. I started off with the idea of making a collage with the most appealing sounds from the field recordings, but ended up processing them quite heavily, so not much of the original sounds can be recognized in the end. Still the natural origin of the sources is reflected in an organic feel to the sounds, and their overall shapes determine the structure of the piece.
