We were asked to make a work that in some way defined a place, the island of Fuerteventura. One way of imagining a place is to capture an image of one concrete point. With the idea of the wall of volcanic rock that separated the island of Fuerteventura into two Guanche (the ancient natives of the Canary Islands) kingdoms, “la pared”, these videos picture two sides of an imaginary line. The soundtrack was composed to be heard on headphones only. The sound was recorded in close proximity to a stereo microphone, with the flutist moving from one side to the other. The listener will experience the sound intimately, as it moves just behind and on either side of his or her head.
Directional pattern, Neumann microphone used for recording of the piece.
