This is a Soundscape that CPL Cassandra Flowers and I made for our "Location Recording" class at Syracuse University. All sounds were recorded by us in Onondaga county, minus the ones noted below.
The concept that bookends the life featured in the piece stems from a partial interpretation of a Modest Mouse song, titled "3rd Planet," specifically the chorus:
Your heart felt good it was drippin pitch and made of wood.
And your hands and knees felt cold and wet on the grass to me.
Outside naked, shiverin looking blue, from the cold
Sunlight that's reflected off the moon.
Baby cum angels fly around you reminding you we used
To be three and not just two.
And that's how the world began.
And that's how the world will end.
A 3rd had just been made and we were swimming in the
Water, didn't know then was it a son was it a daughter.
When it occurred to me that the animals are swimming
Around in the water in the oceans in our bodies and
Another had been found another ocean on the planet
Given that our blood is just like the atlantic.
