Matilde introduces us to a recording she made in Mirepoix, Ariège, France in August 2012. "Great setting. A perfect day, great temperature, sky turning red and and amazingly loud sound of the birds going wild coming from nowhere to be seen. It was a very spontaneous recording."

The quartet make the soundscape their habitat before beginning to explore long-form (foirm fada) improvisation and interaction - both with each other and their adopted sonic environment - particularly experimenting with delicate, detailed micro-sound.
