This piece is a continuation of my first work in response to George Ella Lyon’s poem “Where I’m From”. In this soundscape I have created an aesthetic by exploring and manipulating familiar sound sources to make an introspective textural soundscape. Inspired by the project Subatomic Dreams (2012) by Lanfranco Spadaro, I have edited the work so that some of the recordings acquire a completely unrecognisable sound from their original form.
The reminiscent theme explored in “Silent Recollections” is also continued through this piece. I have attempted to capture elements of my past and “Where I’m From” by composing nostalgic sounds within an aural setting. The techniques used have been influenced by Andrew Weis’s works, in particular Galleria Drone (2015), which creates an intriguing soundscape through the amalgamation of recognisable sounds with an ambient music quality.
