Heather Spence & Klaus Dobbler: Murmur

ORIGIN We are water. Water created us, sustains us, connects us. Water brings forth life. RHYTHM Rhythm of water is our rhythm. CHILDREN Children come from us and continue us. They are beauty and connect us to the future. WALL Wake up! Tune in! Unconsciously we build a wall of noise that confines us, disorients us, obscures our common origin and rhythms. Separated from our commonality, we lose ourselves, we lose everything. FUTURE We have the opportunity to respect water, our life source. Can we stop clashing and start listening? Can we restore our equilibrium through mindfulness? [[Recorded with a zoom h4n, primarily from Graz (Mur river), Berlin (swans + other samples), and Barcelona (rain)]]
