**200 copies** "This project represents a distillation of our field recording and life adventures during the course of 5 years that we have known each other. Over those years, we’ve spent countless hours on field recording missions, recording sessions, concerts, and touring together. With this in mind, we decided to narrow our focus for this project. Initially seeking out sound environments in and around in East Vancouver, we became focused on large transportation hubs such as shipping yards and train yards in the area. In these environments, we began listening to various ‘man-made’ sound events and observing their relationship to the relative ‘stillness’ during periods of inactivity. In a series of long form recordings made with multiple microphones placed in static positions, it was possible to explore the characteristics of very specific ‘durational’ sound events, as they slowly unfolded in relation to our microphones over an extended period of time. Rather trying to portray the essence of these experiences through a documentary or representational style, we took advantage of the natural timing of these events, in relation to the spatial and dynamic conditions revealed in the process of recording, to inform the structural properties of what became these compositions, our Sound Diary of Quiet Pedestrians." - Mathieu Ruhlmann & Joda Clément, 16 March 2018
