秋吉台国際芸術村 Akiyoshidai International Art Village

The site of my residency fellowship program from October 2 to 29, 2016. This site was primarily explored through a series of sound recordings.


OCT 5

A typhoon was forecasted to arrive in the evening on October 4, however, no wind or rain arrived until early morning when I heard one clap of thunder and a sudden downpour. Began to rain again sporadically in vary strengths around 7:30am. Thunder and a small amount of lightning. The wind picked up around this time as well. Attempted to obtain recordings of these phenomena from my balcony, however, the texture of wind in the trees was difficult to obtain without it sounding like white noise. The rushing of water below my balcony contributed to this. There were also occasional sudden gunshots from the shooting range nearby. Tried to eliminate white noise by putting my omnidirectional DPA 4060s inside my socks as an extra wind barrier. 

Shortly after, the rain eased and I was able to obtain some pleasing recordings of the wind by placing my DPA 4060s with windjammers at the base of some long grass in the outdoor amphitheatre behind my studio. The grass helped to shield the microphones from the wind and also created a layering of wind textures through proximity. The immediate rustling of the encompassing grass contrasted well with the wind building in the distant trees.
