I've always been fascinated by sound, in every form and category.
Since I was a kid, I recorded not only music from every source, but sounds too.
After all these years, I discovered the magic world of field recordings: this was great, because I felt that wasn't alone!
So I started to record some sounds and noises in the small country where I live, but not only.
In this research, I've re-discovered some mysterious tracks from old dusty tapes I have - and I also enclosed some excerpts here.

Track Listing explanation:
tracks 1, 2, 13 & 14 were recorded between september and december 2018 in my small country, to capture some familiar feelings.
Tracks 5, 9, 10, 11 & 12 were recorded in my house (see below for datation): there are some home noises that I've found funny to listen and record.
In particular, track 11 is...me sleeping!
Tracks 15, 16, 17, 18 are excerpts from recordings made by my father Elio with a dictaphone during a funny dinner.
There are a bit unintelligible,but fascinating.
These are only an excerpt of a more than 3 hour 'conversation fun documentary' that probably I will realize in the future.
Tracks 4, 6, 7, 8 are taken from old dusty tapes from my family recorded in 1974/75 (except for the motor fragment, taken from an unknown broadcast by me in '92)
In particular 06 & 98 are taken from a mysterious tape found in tuscany woods;"Winter '74" is a recording that I've found really fascinating since I was a kid.
I discovered when I was 6 or 7, probably is an unintelligible private conversation or some recording test from some TV or radio broadcast in '74.
In origin track was more longer, because there was some radio music excerpts too, but for obvious reasons, I've selected only the interested part.
Track 3 was recorded in october 2018 and it's me recording some weird radio stations noises, from arabia, france, urss, etc.
Hope you will enjoy these humble tracks: this will not be an isolate episode, but - I hope - the first of a long series.
I dedicated this work to my girlfriend, family and to a few closest friends: they deserve it, because they always sustain me with enthusiasm.
Peace. Enjoy it! And remember:sound is music too, everything is sound.

José Manuel Páez Moncaleano  - Strata
 
01. Baumschicht (05:51)
02. Strauchschit (05:23)
03. Bodenschicht (13:52)

'Strata' explores the concept of forestal stratification. So for the same habitat you will listen three different sound perspectives. One from the top of the trees perspective, one from the mid trees level and one from the bottom ground of the forest. All the field recordings were taken on small trip to Villavicencio, Colombia, South America.
