Dance of the Dust

Part of our Sound Photography project - this sound is based entirely on the accompanying photograph, pictured here. 

By the Unsound Collective. 

"The sound composed for this photo is an improvisation inspired by the pictured elements, a long and evolving soundscape which wants to take the viewer through different moments of the building's life. The atmospheres require to view different areas of the picture and let that moment speak through the soundscape.

The photo offers the possibility to learn about an indoor and outdoor space, a continuous, calm and evolving environment outside and a decaying atmosphere indoor, we decided to narrate a story of the invisible protagonist, the floating dust particles which are always there, in a perpetual dance.

The soundtrack is made of 3 main parts:

Part I

Introducing the noises and atmospheres, scattered, warm and sporadically bold, it echoes the past events that took place in the abandoned space

Part II

Takes the viewer to a different moment, the sound is quieter and longer, trying to reach that horizon in the long distance, outside the window

Part III

Interference and static noises have witnessed hundreds of hundreds of people and events. This is what's left. Combined with the calm and vacuumed atmosphere pictured on the outside."
