about

The weather was unsettled and the river was high from storms and flooding on this field trip. I went to the top of the bridge and was all alone. I lay down and, having just worked with the breath below the bridge, lay face down in the middle of the bridge, with my face and lips touching the stone cold surface, and imagined the swollen river rushing beneath me, I tried to see with my minds eye, through the stone material of the bridge, and imagined myself just suspended in the air above the river. There I lay, with birds passing overhead, invisible, as I breathed into, and out through, the stone, noticing how my breath slowed right down the longer I lay there, tasting the rainy surface.

This audio was recorded in the winter of 2015, but has only just been made into this sound-sketch. It is in 2 layers (panned left and right, headphones recommended), one of which is actually treated with a subtle delaying and pitch lowering effect. This is the first time I have done this on a Site Singing sound-work, and it respresents the first small experiment in that direction.
