Repressed Memories – USuck

(no audio, text following)

The sound of internal peristalsis combined with the memory. A sluice of physical actions and emotions rolls into and out of consciousness with this sound of sucking on an oceanic scale. No amount of hard wall can hold back the ocean’s ebb and flow. You can suck as much as you want but it will be wet in here…Recorded at Blackwood River Estuary, Australia, in 2009 — at a foolish land reclamation project on a sand bank, online at -34.324466, 115.170101 .

Potlačené vzpomínky – TyCucas

Zvuk zažívacích svalů spojený se vzpomínkou. Stavidlo fyzických akcí a emocí přelévajících se ve vědomí tímto zvukem oceánického sání. Žádná stěna není tak silná, aby zadržela příliv i odliv. Ať cucáš jak cucáš, bude tam mokro…Nahráno v ústí řeky “Blackwood” v Austrálii, v roce 2009 během pošetilého rekultivačního projektu na písčine. Online –34.324466, 115.170101
