Notes

Track #1 field recording made in Normandy, France. With plastic bags and water dripping, mixed with vinyl scratches and found objects treated with filters.
Track #2 field recording made inside an oyster park in St Nazaire, France. Immerged in ocean water, with the microphones near the surface. The small squeaking sounds are those of oyster shells against waves.
Track # 3 was recorded in Kuantan, Malaysia. At the South China sea cost, the beach at night, surrounded with mangrove trees filled with birds chanting, and distant kids voice playing. All other sounds, except the wooden rythm at the begining, are urban field recordings and electronic patterns.
Track #4 was recorded in the forest of San José, Peru. Additinal recorded in Kuantan, Malaysia. Many urban sounds were treated with FFT driven filters, giving harmonics and white noise blur.

Limited edition of 40.
