Field-Recording of the sound installation Rumors from the sea composed of hundreds of bamboos, usually used in Thailand as seawalls to slow coastal erosion, with a flute at their top. A bamboo-flutes orchestra played by the waves, performing unique concerts 24 hours a day, depending of the tide, the direction, tempo and force of the waves. As a potential listener, you are invited to define the beginning and the end of the music piece played for you.

Project done in collaboration with the Bambugu’s builders and the students of Ban Klong Muang School. We imagine together a creature that could come from the sea to help humans to fight climate change: the installation is a call to listen to it singing, it screaming, while it tries to stop the waves.
Part of the Thailand Biennale 2018 in Krabi.

Recorded by ORTF Schoeps Microphones, on a Sound Devices 633 recorder.
Original recording in Wave 96kHz 24 bit.
