FELD, STEVEN: Suikinkutsu

Quantity in Basket:none

A composition made from soundscape recordings of a 'water zither' - an artefact made of ceramic and bamboo, found in Japanese gardens which amplifies and accentuates the tone and pitches of water as it drips from a stone basin. This continuous 60-minute recording, which goes nowhere and sounds perfectly natural, recreates a hyper-real version of a Japanese garden, with ostinato crickets and modulating resonant dripping. Sun and water.
