Sessions in the Forest – Almudena González and Luiz Rocha

Almudena González – flute
Luiz Rocha – clarinet

Campania, Italy – Summer 2016

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.
