“There’s a place in France”Posted: July 14, 2012
[found sound from Morocco, Paris, Washington, DC; samples; original music]
Using a Zoom H2, I collected sound during my travels in Morocco and Paris. When I got back to DC and started composing, I took sound from the streets here and also grabbed some from YouTube (a saint speaking about the desert in French).
I tried to evoke specific locations. The photos below are some of the images I used to anchor the piece. The final 2 images are from the production.
I mixed the project in Logic Pro 9.
