Again, the microphone picked up sounds outside the barn which there not so obvious to hear while making this recording. Listening back, I can hear that I actually pitched my first note from the sound of a reversing lorry, so I must have done a kind of non-conscious pitching in to the environment, which was a complete surprise to me.

This track is an arranged composite of a single recording and its copy, one echoing the other in canon to create a kind of call and response between a single voice and its replica. In one section, I edited out the onset of the vocal sound, to leave mostly its trail and multiple echo behind, separated from its source.

I like how on this track you can hear children, passing the barn to the play park near by, singing back some of the sounds they are hearing me make.
