Description of work with field recording
In march 2011 I started the project Monday Sounds: www.mondaysounds.de With Monday Sounds, I want to put the audible world in the front of the perception. Each monday, I’m uploading one special sound from the “real-world”, that I recorded. Therefore I\'m using a Zoom H-2. I’m searching for sonic snippets, that seem worth listening to. The sounds are free to download in in the week of their appearance! In my compositional work, I work a lot with transformed field recordings to create surreal sound worlds. Therefore I use digital Signal Processing Software such as Csound or Max/MSP.
