Seascape

Seascape is from another seaside visit here in San Diego. The approach to this piece was a bit different than Sea Song which I posted before, as you will hear. This time as I sat quietly I realized that there was this harmonious layer of sounds all occurring at their own pace but somehow not in conflict. You might think that all of those sounds coming at you at once would make you anxious. Instead, the slow and steady repetition, as well as, the absence of the sounds competing with each other created a sense of calm. I will never be able to capture the works of nature but if you can’t make it out to the shore I hope this will be an adequate substitute. Take 5 minutes to sit quietly and hear the sounds of the California Coast.

Sea Song

This is an experimental piece where I charted the sights and sounds I heard around me while sitting on the beach here in San Diego. I then went home and assigned instruments or electronic sounds to each of these aural and visual cues from my time there and layered them as they occurred, along with a recording I took of the Pacific Ocean in action. The melody arrived toward the end of the data collection – a result of being completely present, I am certain. I use it now for short meditations and it transports me immediately back to the calm of a day by the sea. Perhaps it will do the same for you.
