Soundscape Composition: Flow

Flow  (8:21) This video and more importantly the audio was created by Tim Opie using the composition technique known as eco-structuralism in which sound recordings, particularly field recordings, are analyzed for underlying structures and patterns. This analysis, used in conjunction with a strict set of rules, becomes the constructs of the musical work.

The field recordings for this composition were recorded at a waterfall near The Basin in Victoria, Australia. It was recorded just after the first rainfall since the major fires on Black Saturday had begun and had been burning for two weeks. There was some ash in the air and very little water in the river - just enough to get some flow, and a little fire relief. Source: Vimeo
