Fiesole Dawn Chorus 02.05.2021
Up the hill, Bosconi, Fiesole, IT
This is an open microphone from the north east rolling countryside of Florence.
Fiesole is an ancient small village up the hill next to the city of Florence with a big portion of woods and olive's tree fields. The entire area was used as shelter by partisans during second world war, and historically it is considered as the Etruscan-Roman cradle as so many tombs and archeological sites tell us.
The intent is to stream from my immediate surround where the urban and the bucolic merge, possibly from my back hill where I go walking and discovering old pathways with small rivers and wild fields. On one side the urban center is not that far, and on the other the valley is very open towards the mountains. Expect birds, stilness, water, wind, occasional cars, bycicles and distant voices.
Set up: Laptop + Audio Interface + Binaural Microphones + Windshield streamed live via BUTT on https://locusonus.org/soundmap/051/
Thanks to Dawn Scarfe, Christine Bramwell, Ciara Drew and Grant Smith for this opportunity and their support.
