The 2011 Washington rainbow gathering was held in the Gifford Pinochet National Forest.
This years collection of field recordings includes 66 songs, poems and outtakes recorded at the 2011 Washington rainbow gathering held in the Gifford Pinochet National Forest near the towns of Carson and Cougar. Most of the songs and poems were recorded in the Granola Funk, Popcorner, Poly-Glamorous & What Have You neighborhood. After sorting through the audio I came up with a 2 CD set with 33 tracks on each disc. As always, Pass Freely, No Sale or Commercial Use.
It should be noted that many of the tracks on this years collection features the ambient sounds of food prep, theater construction, trail walking wanders, underwater hydrophone recordings (Aquarian Audio H1a Hydrophone), dish buckets, contact mic on cutting board and heartbeats, campfire ruminations and, of course, the frogs in and around Skookum Meadows.
It has been an interest of mine for some time to include more of the often forgotten sounds of our daily chores, comings and goings, and what have you. Recording at a gathering offers serendipitous and effervescent sound bites at almost any given moment and I was fortunate enough to discover some charming and bucolic snippets from the various camps, kitchens, trails, forests and meadows.
From the vapors of our imagination to tomorrows memories, may this collection of mellifluous songs, poems and outtakes delightfully entertain your ears like the way a homemade vanilla milkshake engages joy upon your taste buds. DING! DING! DING!
Oh, and, be well, take care, peace, over n out and what have you…
