about

The instrumental "Ancient Forest" was inspired by Gordon Hempton's recordings and his book One Square Inch of Silence. It is played entirely on a single acoustic guitar. After finishing his book, I started listening to his recordings on my headphones. I was blown away. He records natural sounds using a mannequin with microphones in its ears and this creates a complete aural picture of the scene. I was fiddling around on the guitar shortly afterward and this is what emerged. Several sounds loosely represent natural sounds such as woodpeckers, owls, flies, birds, and centipedes. "Ancient Forest" is an experiment and a channeling of inspiration using a single acoustic guitar.
