description
When the Days All Tip from Nests and Fly Down Roads consists exclusively of Field Recordings made by various sound artists and myself during our residencies at MoKS in Mooste, Estonia for the Active Crossover project curated by Simon Whetham and John Grzinich. The piece is constructed from sonic discoveries made during the expeditions of Mooste and its surroundings, which was especially appealing to me for the contrasts between nature and derelict and abandoned structures from the soviet area. I chose recordings of rain resonating two large scaled plastic tubes, a gurgling stream, wire fence set to motion by the ever changing winds, startled geese flying over and frogs singing their songs embedded into the natural soundscape of rural Estonia, amongst others. My aim was to convey the atmosphere I was absorbed in, wandering around in solitude in the landscape almost devoid of human presence.
