Letea Soundscapes

Toni Dimitrov
Ambient trip through Danube Delta

(4’16”, October 2019)

An ambient/soundscape piece containing field recordings from the whole trip to the Danube Delta and a nice subtle ambient melody. From the rain on the ferry on Danube, the traffic in Tulcea, the birds at Letea mornings, the canals in Sulina, to the forest, the wild horses, frogs, mosquitoes and the rich quietness of the delta. It is a meditative soundscape that compresses whole two-week experience into five minutes.

 

Sound piece created during the SONIC FUTURE RESIDENCIES organized by Asociația Jumătatea plină and SEMI SILENT to Letea Village, Tulcea County, Romania in June-July 2019.
