sound installation produced on site in zaragosa. 5 seperate channels
of sound consisting of underwater recordings taken in water
etc in Zaragosa. These sounds were piped back through pvc
pipes which further filtered the sound.

"I made a number of recordings with
an underwater microphone which subtly include many background
sounds which are transmitted through the medium of water,i.e
the hum of the city, traffic, movement, as well as the sound
of the water itself. Most recordings were made close to manmade
structures such as bridges, in canals, fountains and other
places where man attempts to exert control over water".
which are recordings of the immediate environment, have
been described by sonic ecologist Hildegard
Westerkamp as an “acoustic manifestation of place” that
is “an intimate reflection of-among others-the social,
political, technological, and natural conditions of the area.”soundscape:
an environment created by sound either using field recordings
or edited or manipulated sound.
