Music

Music is organized sound. For ten thousands of years humans have been making music inspired and influenced by sounds from nature (source: ScienceDirect).

That’s how long we’ve been using handmade instruments, which we use to play with natural rhythms and melodies. The rhythm of day and night, walking, seasons, and melodies from the wind, birds, etcetera. Sounds is a powerful tool for communication and it makes us move.

In places I’ve visited I’ve recorded most nature sounds you hear in Syraforest, with a Zoom H2n. This way the music is formed by sounds of our existing nature, combined with storytelling by playing instruments. A modern interpretation of ancient rituals.
