This summer I got the chance to visit a very nice holiday resort in Bulgaria located near the town of Obzor. Of course, my trusty microphone went with me (as did the camera), because the sea always attracted my attention, soothed my mind and made me feel like home.
I immediately liked the place, partly because of the fact that even if it was crowded at times, there was always a chance to find a place where I could hunt for sounds without being disturbed...Well, maybe it was due to the fact that I was just one of a few visitors, who used to get up at 5:30 am...
Anyway, soon my collection of sounds got bigger and bigger, and I knew this could make a nice collection of meditative, relaxing sounds. Later, when reviewing all the various samples (from sea waves to flags flapping in the wind, a swimming pool drain to wind howling on a hotel staircase, banisters, or a night-light), I realized I had a kind of a “portrait” of a place under my fingers, which could inspire one to create, to invent, to dream, whatever... I felt the Genius loci - the “spirit of the place” was present and made this happen.
