Description of work with field recording
My way of using fieldrecordings is located between documentation and fiction. At first is like writing a diary: all sounds have their own specific importance as personal memories and are still documents related to a certain place and time, to a trip or simply a walk in the city or in the woods.After i use the collected recordings to compose a single sound flow overlapping places and times creating a mental space in wich the phenomena of reality echos in a new and different way. Somehow as it happens in dreams.
