Sound Myth #3 Description -

The SoundShifters sweep and compile savanna sounds and man-made song tracks alongside government wildlife conservation sweeps - via local safari teams in Brazil, Central Africa and Northern Australia. Samples are temporarily banked in home studios for distillation then uploaded to the machines at the Brower Center in Berkeley, CA.

Each outing is organized with a Journey Map. Each team uses the maps to establish the location targets and production agenda but also to better understand the conscious and subconscious triggers of the savanna ecosystem swirling in their microphones. The SoundShifters are listening for the human pressures on the savannas and the feedback songs of the plants, animals, tribes and the weather.

File transfer, storage and mixing occurs at the "SoundWomb," a rented basement office at the Center. The project director hunts and gathers through web sites, blogs, UC-Berkeley references, sound libraries and press releases to develop the final score for Sound Myth #3 project.
