Bright Low is a new experiment in ambient music.
The idea came from the interest in the rythmicity of natural sound events and the interest in organic models (forms, methods and patterns found in living systems such as the organisation of cells, to populations, communities, and ecosystems).
I started by recording a few minutes in april, on a sunny spring day in the Bogda Forest. The recording consists of different sounds of birds and insects. All high volume sounds (the ones that emerged from the background sound) were eliminated, except for the sounds of the insects that landed on one of the microphones - event that offers the listener a feeling of physical intimacy with the sound source. The resulting sound was processed with various reverberation and tape delay units thus obtaining several tracks that consist of the same sound events but placed in spaces with totally different acoustics than the original (halls, rooms, vast spaces). Bright Low is a song created by mixing all the above tracks.
