In little poor but picturesque village between canals, the ancient forest and the sea – Letea, the animals are the main and most common inhabitants. Because of constant depopulation, disappearing of traditional living, jobs and consequences of climate change, the village is changing dramatically, many buildings lost their carers and are neglected, abandoned. Now, the animals take over the people’s dwellings. Listen to the sound image of a house inhabited by horses.
This composition is part of the series “Inverted Houses” – field recordings from many abandoned sheds, cottages and buildings in Letea.
Sound composition created during the SONIC FUTURE RESIDENCIES organized by Asociația Jumătatea plină and SEMI SILENT in Letea Village, Tulcea County, Romania in June-July 2019.
