Michel Banabila - Gardening
Another work of electronically processed sounds, but with extensive use of field recordings, that sound as if indeed they were taped while gardening. The amplification of a spade for instance. Raking the grass, picked up with a rusty contact microphone. No heavy electronic processing, but rather gentle. Sometimes a loop or two, giving the feeling of a small song, backed up by other tiny events. It’s not music in the generally accepted sense, but it’s not exactly ‘ambient’ either. Intimate seems the right word here.
