many thanks to marcella perdomo and mito castillo (the hondurian team) and jean-marc at taâlem
composer, frédéric nogray pays a particular attention on sounds
in their intrinsic qualities and for what they are: vibratory
phenomenon. but also for their broadcasting into the listening
space, our perceptions on it, and different states of
consciousness induced by listening. along his musical works with
crystal singing bowls and/or feedbacks, he creates dreamlike
sonic compositions from field recordings. his past works were
released by various international labels such as kaon or 3leaves.
all sounds used for "wuritagu" were field recorded on the north coast of honduras during may 2012, in and around la ensenada and triunfo de la cruz. wuritagu, el lago negro is a lake between these two garifuna villages. surrounding the lake there are mangroves. at one end the lake is separated from the caribbean sea by a beach. at the other end, a small road connects the two villages. all sounds were recorded at different moments of the day and at night.
"wuritagu" is a powerful field recording-based composition where you can feel the raw energy of the jungle
