For Kinokophonography04 I submitted a short recording in response to the theme of Power:
Pyrenees Post Ramming (2011) 2:39
Recorded in the French Pyrenees, this recording illustrates a tiny section of our recently completed fencing project to create a new safe home for a horse and donkey. We rammed half a kilometre of fence posts with this post rammer using nothing but our bare hands – check the POWER!!!
With small mountains to either side of the stream, louder sounds can be heard reflected throughout the valley – I attempted to capture this in the recording as it has now become a familiar characteristic of the location where Buzzard, Red Kite and Woodpecker can often be heard.
