This is a sketchbook, right? No sketchbook can be complete without cut outs of some sort. A scrap of newspaper, a photograph, a paper wrapping.
Field recordings like these are my main inspiration, clippings from the ongoing soundtrack I’m subscribed to, called Life – I find them fascinating and abstract and often also witty. About what we Would Like to hear and what life Actually sounds like.
My phone is full of these little recordings, and I don’t care about poor quality, coat rustling, volumes. It all adds to what the sketch will spark in my imagination.
I was looking for a certain recording and stumbled upon these two little gems – we’re in the NYC subway.
