- Construction Notes -

The ideas for this SoundCollage were originally sound fragments or samples, based upon key word searches in the Freesound.org database. Only later, fueled by the draft title, and a "trial by fire" score (see illustration), did the sound symbols reveal words - and ultimately a short song.

[ i. ] An idea sparks, some resonance or purpose is visualized and / or heard

[ ii. ] A title is crafted and utilized as exploratory scaffolding

[ iii. ] Write with sound, layering meaning

[ iv. ] Imaging the sound as an image

[ v. ] Assigning segment titles:

Angel Calls
Ángel llama

Wind in the Garden
Viento en el jardín

Rockin' Chair
la mecedora

Inoculation
la vacunación

Angel Calls
Ángel llama

[ vi. ] Editing segments then entire piece:
Shortening segments, repeating segments, adding silence, volume up or down

[ vii. ] Color backgrounds for video:

Black, Grey, Lime Green, White
