Just before heading to Free Flow Festival, where we had a couple of gigs, we stopped by a pine forest in South Italy to record the video below.
The idea of the this video was to let the woods speak, to listen and respond accordingly, and let character of the ambience to be sensed.
Some days later we’ve played at a sort of cave in Matera – Basilicata, where the spot itself wouldn’t speak, yet it replied to us out loud. Here’s a recording during the sound check.
Watch the video at the woods, then listen to the recording at the cave.
This is a recording while checking the acoustics before our concert at the Free Flow Festival in Matera, South Italy.
We’re playing at a Sassi di Matera, in a cave that in the past was used to store goods for making wine. This place has an amazing acoustic, a lot of resonance and quite balanced frequencies. All the reverberation you’ll listen here is natural of the cave.
I’m late for this but, just to keep the record, here’s the flier and here are the participants:
