Status: Not Available
01. Juringels Warten (18:17)
02. Astra Park (21:11)
The first track of this release is a composed soundscape of unprocessed
field recordings dealing with themes of contact, wind, insects and snow.
The second track is considered a societal study - a straight field recording of
a bird meeting at Astra Park, the city center of Sibiu, Romania (jackdaws,
ravens, starlings, etc). This recording is all about the birds, so it is
suggested that the listener keep their focus on them for the first few minutes
of the recording. The listener's attention and patience will be greatly
rewarded. All that will be said is that Alfred Hitchcock's film "The Birds" has
nothing on this scenario... Recorded on November 13, 2008, 5:05 pm.
