SAILSONG

YORKSHIRE DALES SOUNDSCAPE

At a remote reservoir in rural Northern England, the clattering of rigging from sailing dinghies is captured and played by jets of wind. A dry stone wall whistles, as delicate sounds are revealed between the passing of dislocated cars pushing air.
Processing of sound is kept to a minimum – most of the compositional work is achieved through careful microphone technique, as a camera might explore perspective and light.
