""Saving Fish From Drowning" is a profound soundscape serving as a manifesto on the impact of commercial fishing and the urgent need to protect the local minority of fishermen who safeguard Portugal's cultural heritage and maintain a sustainable connection with the sea.In
this enchanting track, a dreamy and airy atmosphere gracefully unfolds, artfully capturing the beautiful connection between the hardworking fishermen by the dock and the cunning seagulls attempting to steal their prized catch. To accomplish this artistic vision, I skilfully employed tape loops, which evoke a profound and heartfelt connection to the realm of sustainable fishing. Additionally, the delicate use of granular loopers serves as a poignant symbol of the fishermen's ethical and harmonious coexistence with the seagulls, creating a truly mesmerizing auditory experience."
