As I work with mostly one field recording as the primary sound source to create sound pictures, after processing the results can be surprising. What emerges also shows how my mind can hear strange things and my imagination sees not your usual sound worlds as a result.
On Icebugs I imagined a soundworld where a mass of tiny plankton float in an arctic sea. Some glow in the dark, others emit electrical impulses. Some rattle, hum, click, pop and boing and as most of my tracks are best listened via headphones and if you listen carefully, there is a mass of life teeming just under the ice shelf.
