Track Talk: Meeting Place Of the Heart

This track was prompted as a call for submissions in the Electronic Cottage group on Facebook. The call came from Claire Furchick Pannell of Dogpark Records for a compilation of recordings entitled Bombora.

Claire offered a sample pack of water sounds from a place close to her home in Perth, Australia. As a a guide to using the sounds she wrote:

Noongar are the First Nations peoples who live in the south-west corner of Western Australia

Boodja is country.

I titled my track, “Meeting Place Of the Heart” and used it as a repeated refrain throughout. This was done on the OP-1‘s vocoder which was introduced in a firmware update the very week I was composing this track.




I feel vaguely confident that this song, created entirely out of other peoples’ loops (in the spirit of the competition) is the only one like it in this collection.Fluffy Porcupine
