We are surrounded by noise, just about all of which we filter out either mechanically or mentally. But when I made note of unexpected and beautiful noises that arose throughout a day, in short order I started to have a sonic journal of surprising delicacy and emotion. Just using the recorder directly on my phone to capture anything that struck me as beautiful or unusual. Then I mixed it together for a short ( 1 minute) piece....but maybe over the weekend I'll get in the studio and work more with these sounds ( or others).
