I wanted to create the feeling of being enveloped by sound, combining the man made noises with the natural. I also want people to be slightly unsettled by what they hear as they are unable to differentiate the natural noises from the unnatural.
Irv Teibel “Environments 7” and Brian Eno piece “Textures” were my inspirations for this short piece. Teibel creates his ambient soundtrack utilising only voice. He layers singers who all sing a single note that changes pitch during the piece. Eno’s sound is a combination of synthetic noises and musical edited together to create a ambient track. Both have managed to create a similar atmosphere to what, I hope, to have achieved with my own piece using only the sounds from area 41 in Fairy Meadow.
