Page Turner – Weekly Sonic Sketchbook #1

This week I picked two studies, one sketch where you can hear something starts to develop, a feeling of the abstract, yet inspired by natural textures, sound I am after. Followed by an earlier attempt that doesn’t work in my opinion.

NB listening to it through my devices without headphones I completely miss out on the quite crucial stereo effect.
