1.
[ a low rhythmic rumble from tired moving slowly over old brick. There are crickets in the distance. the rhythm slows as the car slows to turn, there is a brief pause in the rumbling, a breath and slight rustle from the driver's movement as they readjust, quiet crickets in the distance. ]
2.
[ a distinct whirring sound that both rumbles and drones at a higher frequency, there is some wind in the midground that becomes increasingly present at the track goes on. The whirring eventually fades as the wind and sounds from higway traffic move to the foreground. ]
3.
[ A loud thunderclap rolls through the foreground, insects ]
4.
[ a din of honking frogs and screeching insects. It is a loud and chaotic scene. The honking and guttural rhythms of the frogs are syncopated, occasionally slipping into alignment before falling quickly apart again]
5.
[ a quiet scene that is full of action with a variety of birds and insects. The occasional sound of small fruits falling from trees, crashing through damp brush. Small animals moving around above and below. ]
6.
[ Small untuned bells, aluminum, brass and tin move across the field. Hooves bounce along pavement then grass. ]
7.
[ a quiet scene, some very distant water from a stream, faint birds call from time to time ]
8.
[ a rooster starts a call and another follows along, a group of ducks or geese quick and squawk while a dog barks, insects occasionally buzz in the foreground. The ducks stop, but the dogs and roosters continue, occasionally accompanied by a small tweeting bird. The scene ends with the sound of a ship's horn echoing from far away. ]
9.
[ rocks rolling against each other in as ocean waves flow in and out, the pebbles and rocks click together, falling gently against each other as they're pushed and pulled up and down the beach ]

about

This album is a small collection of moments from my recorded life and travel. It's a bit like the context of a diary without the substance. Sounds and spaces that captured me, held me and recordings I revisit over and over again. For now, it’s limited to open spaces, spaces with movement, life and (sometimes quiet) action. I may add to it or release another collection of more detailed movements, close ups and voices.



I also offer this album to individuals who might want to remix or incorporate and re-purpose these recordings in their own works. So unless you’re a major for-profit media organization or a massive corporation, please feel free to enjoy and use the recordings here in whatever way they inspire.
