For several years I've been travelling Europe and Asia exploring, filming and recording lost places. Not the touristy Instagram places, but the truly forgotten and quiet ones, where I was the only visitor for ages. Back in the studio, I reviewed and prepared the material for various art projects. And then I discovered something strange.
When working with this footage, the unreal SOUNDS of these landscapes have a very comforting and soothing, nostalgic tone. It's like... you know having a party, and then the guests leave, and you're exhausted, by happy? The ghosts of guests still lingers. It's the same with these sounds. The landscapes are having their post-party peace.
So I made myself a long edit of it for concentration, and uploaded it so I could play it anywhere.
PS top secret Spotify bonus trick! I've designed it both as a standalone landscape you can repeat forever, AND as a construction kit to build your own personal version. If you sort the tracks alphabetically, they will rise in energy level from quiet to loud. I've prepared a few examples on the Sonotopia profile page.
