Performance 220822

It was very nice to play at the Fulda lock in Bonaforth. Great weather, beautiful sounds to discover and to play with, some people from the village showed up and enjoyed the atmosphere, and also remote listeners from who knows from where.

Some excerpts of the recording will follow soon.

Short excerpt from today’s pop-up Ambient Field, which was located in a meadow near our home base.
Sounds from this plant captured with a contact microphone and some live processing.

listen to nettles

Preparation for the Ambient Fields performances:
Two contact microphones attached to nettles. What a completely different soundscape compared to what we hear at the same place with our naked ears.
