Two compositions derived from an ongoing acoustical investigation
of glaciers, frozen soils, ice formation and melting, and other sub-zero environments, assembled using untreated sound recordings captured by means of hydrophones.
Original source sounds collected in 2014 at Mont Miné glacier, Switzerland.
Additional recordings of fluids at sub-zero temperatures conducted
during august 2015 in a laboratory setting.
Other than layering and editing, no further processing or treatments were applied to the recorded sounds.
Working with microphones and transducers as if they were
a microscope, we discover details of a sonic world normally inaudible
to human ears.
An invitation to immerse into the sound, observe its dynamic
development from the inside, and follow the outbursts of energy
acting like catalysts of the ongoing reactions.
