Field recordings : Winter session

Winter often results in a hard battle against the cold, my first catch of the year is based on this striking theme.

It all start at home with the old boiler that hardly send warm in pipes:

The flow is a calcified radiator and the impacts come from vibration of a cello string, pitched and reverberated. Everything was recorded with two new acquisitions, hand made piezo pickups made by a Canadian.

It continues in the mountains around Grenoble for a night hike:

In the dark night, nothing beats better than a homemade fire torch for light.
It was made with dipped liquefied wax on toilet paper, awfully effective result!

To stay as light as possible, I only took my handy-recorder with me.
This experience has to be re-iterate equipped with my full gear as soon as possible!
