59235 anomaly.

A long street stretches out before you, foreshortened and dissolving as it thrusts into the sharp glint of a low sun. A scatter of nervous sparrows explodes as you approach; then a passing car parts the air, leaving its traces in the whispering turbulence. A distant clocktower strikes the quarter-hour. And then — [the page is partly burnt; the rest is lost].

59186 winter walk nula http://nula.cc/

59186 winter walk.

Afternoon, a winter walk. In the still air, flakes of snow cling to their slow descent like wistful bits of ash from a disintegrating civilization, coming to rest upon the undisturbed snowfall of the previous night; the first of the winter. The forest is quiet as a library; few birds sing, and for a long time, footfalls and breath are the only sounds. Hidden somewhere in this glade are the mysterious stone rows of Kounov, possibly dating to an Iron-age culture of the Hallstatt period from c. 800-500 B.C.E.

59183 november nula http://nula.cc/

59183 november.

In the Czech lands, the name for November is listopad, referring literally to the falling („pad“) of leaves („listy“). Our own common word for this time of year, fall, puts focus on the same annual phenomenon. This composition uses the riffling of the ‘leaves’ of an old book (playing on a common English colocution), together with additional sources.

59090 a horizon effaced ~.

Two movements consisting of heavily altered field recordings from Crimea, together with a small number of instrument samples, exploring a theme suggestive of clouds, fog, mist, rolling waves and the negligible boundaries between these domains. These works can be heard as extreme subjectivizations of the memory, after more than five years had elapsed, of having traveled the peninsula, roaming its roads, wandering among its mountains, towns, open fields, caves and historical sites. They can also be listened to as dynamic abstractions that give a sense of turbulence and fluctuating energies where diaphanous and fluid elements meld, where the horizon disappears, yet seems to float perpetually just beyond reach.

59048 cattle market nula http://nula.cc/

59048 cattle market.

We come to a cattle market alongside the road as we are leaving Artashat, an Armenian regional administrative capital. Sheep, cows, dogs and men standing in the grass and the gravel, making deals. We strike up a conversation with one of the men and, as commonly happens in the Caucasus, we are invited for a visit.

Part of World Listening Day 2020.

59042 land of the rose.

This series of images was made during a week-long journey through the southerly part of Bohemia, a week of rain, roads, heavy clouds, lofty spires, weighty castles, afternoon sun, buzzing flies, beer, nettles, tombstones, statuary, fountains, arched doorways, and receding light. For historical context, see also: ⨀.

59033 from my window.

A dawn recording of birds and rain from my window overlooking a wooded park. The park is home to many doves, jays, magpies and numerous kinds of little birds I don’t know the names of. It forms my contribution to the compilation Pass it on ~ Early Morning Soundscapes ⨀.

58999 morning truck.

Blaring local pop music from a horn speaker mounted atop the driver’s cab, trucks arrive early in the morning at a crossroads north of Pune to take workers to the fields, in the mean time waking every one in the nearby guest house up. And so, we take a walk into the nearby countryside over the pastures and fields to find that the red soil glows in the morning sunlight.

58992 afilador.

This residential street in the city of Montevideo is quiet in the late afternoon. Someone plays a piano; someone else drives nails with a hammer. There are a few cars and motorbikes. Most striking, however, is the sound of the afilador, whose careering slide whistle lets the neighborhood know that he is available to sharpen their knives.

58985 urfa.

I went down into the bazaars of the old city of Urfa (today called Sanlıurfa ) two times that day last July; early in the morning to make photographs, before the business of the day had really begun; and later that day, when the bazaar was in full swing, to capture some of the common sounds of the streets, shops, shoppers, craftsmen at their trades, and the streetside teahouses.
