"Juringels Warten" is a composed soundscape of unprocessed field recordings dealing with themes of contact, wind, insects and snow.
"Astra Park" is considered a societal study - a straight field recording of a massive bird meeting at Astra Park, the city center of Sibiu, Romania (jackdaws, ravens, starlings, etc). This recording is all about the birds, so it is suggested that the listener keep their focus on them for the first few minutes of the recording. The listener's attention and patience will be greatly rewarded. It very much brings to mind Alfred Hitchcock's film "The Birds". Recorded on November 13, 2008, 5:05 pm.
