Inumaki, Esuzaki 01:00:00


Inumaki tree (Podocarpus macrophyllus) recorded with a contact microphone during strong wind in the forest of Esuzaki Island, Wakayama, Japan on June 14, 2018, from 2 to 3 p.m. The unedited and unprocessed recording was reintroduced to the acoustics of the forest.

“Near infinite yet utterly microscopic changes abound. A fascinating listen" (Daniel Alexander Hignell-Tully, Toneshift)
"These sounds show strange and unexpected folds, almost natural harmonics that are unpredictable and elusive” (Davide Ingrosso, The New Noise) 
"It's a challenging piece but one I found strangely absorbing. Little occurs but something about what I take to be the natural rhythm of the interaction between wind and tree, I found compelling." (Brian Olewnick, Just Outside)
