One of the things that I am planning to experiment with and focus on a bit more in the Icelandic Land-Lapse Project is the audio collage.
During the filming of From Sea To Shining Sea, every time we stopped the car to reset the camera and download footage, we recorded a minute or so of wild sound. In editing together the audio collage, we noticed that the sound of the landscape changes: one hears a different bird in Virginia than in Utah; one hears the rain in Indiana; the rumble of the Golden Gate Bridge; the barfly chatter in Kentucky; the vast emptiness of Nevada; the crickets in Kansas; the canyons in Colorado; etc.
This morning I created the piece above – From Sea To Shining Sound – which focuses on the transition in the sound of the landscape – sans music. I plan to do something similar when filming the Icelandic Land-Lapse Project to capture the sound of Iceland’s landscape – the geysers, volcanos, earthquakes, etc.
