In April 2017 SOUNDkitchen visited ‘Ilha Verde’, the green island of São Miguel in the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores. From our base in Ponta Delgada we explored and recorded the island. These recordings document the calls of native wildlife, the interactions of wind and water on the natural and build environment and the sound of human activity and technology.
Ilha Verde.1 is a recording of a live performance at Sound+Environment, Middleton Hall, University of Hull 02 July 2017. The performance combined field recordings, live electronics and live spatialisation in ambisonic format on the HEARO (Hull Electroacoustic Resonance Orchestra) 30 loudspeaker system.
Released on April 8, 2018 on Bandcamp by SOUNDkitchen: Iain Armstrong & Annie Mahtani. All proceeds from this album will go directly to supporting SOUNDkitchen’s activities.
