MIEVILLE, EMMANUEL - FOUR WANDERINGS IN TROPICAL LANDS (CD)


"Someone is gently knocking on metal; a dog is barking in the distance; far away, an Arabic-sounding voice, maybe a muezzin's, can be heard; insects buzz over a background of human activity. With his microphones, Emmanuel Mieville captures moments of reality in exotic lands (Costa Rica, Hong Kong, Malaysia). Then, he edits these field recordings with a computer to create sound compositions driven by the paradox between natural forces (see the chunk of Paradise photographed inside the booklet) and human footprint (the city skyline featured on the cover).Paris-born composer Emmanuel Mieville learned sound engineering at film school, then studied musique concrčte at GRM. He has been composing music since 1986. He has a keen ear for hearing the stories behind each landscape, the melodies trapped inside objects and the sonic pairings that let a story unfold without having to actually tell it." (label info)
