Mort aux vaches: exosphere
The sound sources for this piece are derived from field recordings made in transit on a short series of Main concerts around Europe. Most of Main's composition has a sense of movement and descriptive tone of space / expanse which are often derived or inspired from field recordings that are site specific in a larger context. To change tact, I had the idea of documenting the almost forgotten part of a journey : The relatively short or connecting trips made between hotels and stations / airports etc., which are often considered uninteresting, as we are mentally preparing for the bigger part of the journey.
