mountains. and rivers.

once again we take a walk through soundscapes.
first we'll follow the magic sound mountain collective from montréal:

"On July 23rd, 2011 CKUT’s Magic Sound Mountain Collective made a furtive ascent of Mount Royal and found a spot along one of the less trodden foot paths through the forest where they installed 6 hand made speakers that were used to diffuse multi channel sound compositions for the forest dwellers, invited guests and nature enthusiasts who happen upon the installation while enjoying a hike through the mountain." [CK]

find out more about the installations, compositions and pieces in the related entry at radia.fm

afterwards, we join the binaural/nodar collective to stroll along paivascapes:

"[…] The Paiva is a mountain river with a rocky bed (granite and slate stone) that can either show its rebellious side (strong currents associated with the seasonal variations of its torrent and with the narrowness and unevenness of its bed in several areas), or gently slide through terraces of agricultural fields, crossing small rural riverside villages that live in close connection with it.
The narrative revolves around the uncertainties that exist about the exact spot where the river starts. You can listen a villager pinpointing the exact locations where different small streams gather to form the river, others discuss different theories and don't reach any positive conclusion and one lady asserts that the river begins in two different locations: one of them being an hermitage on top of a mountain, the Senhora da Lapa, where people gather in pilgrimage once a year. Other themes are also present: the agricultural use of riverside lands, the names of particular 'poços' or depressions where people claim 'the river is bottomless', the locations of the watermills where people used to grind corn and the places where fish was or still is abundant." [B./N.]
