Sounds now heard as song 11

Here is my latest in the sounds series. Most of these tracks have appeared on this website or on compilations, but I thought I should finally give them a proper release. Quite a few of the tracks go back to 2011-2014. Track 3 was recorded recently. Enjoy and thanks for listening.

River Thoughts (Free Streaming)

Hello, My film River Thoughts, which is currently on Vimeo on Demand, is free to stream for one week. Have a look. 

River Thoughts:
River Thoughts is a lyrical journey through the city of Nanjing, China during the summer months. Modern architecture, urban landscapes, melodies of folk songs, rainy villages, and studies of the Yangtze river are carefully blended together to create a visual and aural tapestry of the city. In addition, the super 8 film, A few days in October,  from the Journal of Drifting Hours series was added at the end. Both were premiered in January 2021.

Landscape Tempo 42

Landscape Tempos are audiovisual views (scenes, occurrences) that reflect the light, rhythm, and tempo of isolated moments in urban and rural landscapes. This tempo was shot in Maryland.

Atlantic Views

Atlantic views is an ongoing series that will observe various views/lights/sounds of the Atlantic Ocean. These two views are from late December. This project is in the early stages, so things could change. More soon.

Compilations from 2021

Below are two excellent compilations that I somehow missed to post when they were originally published. The first is a collection of Brood X Cicada sounds compiled by Sound Artist Slavek Kwi:

The second is a compilation put together by Rafael Torres for the Horizon Sound Series 002 called A Moment of Tranquility which features two Lynlee tracks

Massive thanks to Slavek, Rafael, and Una

Oto no Yukue! New release with Hiroko Komiya

I am really honored to share a new full length release with Hiroko Komiya. We have been working on these tracks for about 8 months. Most of the work appeared here, but there are a few surprises. Details on the release page.

Oto no Yukue -the destination of the sound- began in the spring of 2021 and finished mixing and composing in November of 2021. The process of extracting the instant sound of each land, exchanging like a sound letter, and creating new compositions from the explorations slowly took shape. The end result became a sketchbook-like album of sounds with seasonal changes, elements of nature, and some distant memories.
