sounds like it should be fairly simple; it's not.
sound is not my thing.
i can't play any instruments; i can't tell instruments apart in songs (i'm pretty sure there's no difference between drums and bass); i listen to lyrics because i don't understand the rest.
needless to say, i had no idea how to start this project.
i had no idea where to go with it after i started it.
i have no idea what to think of it now that it's finished.
so, i did the only thing that came to mind; i took my camera out to the stable over my weekend at home.
i set it up in Boomer's stall while i was grooming him and let it capture sounds that are very common and fun and comforting to me and i called it, a day with my boy.
in it you can hear breathing, brushing, chewing, walking.
horses are pretty magnificent creatures.
it was difficult for me to put this together because i associate these sounds with images and emotions and i'm not sure how well i was able to separate the two in my mind to make a successful end product.
time i get to spend with Boomer is really special.
i treasure it, because let's be honest, i'm a little busier and have a few more responsibilities now than i did when i was 9.
i suppose that this is a kind of tribute, a thank you to him for all the help he's given me over the years.
i hope it makes you as happy as it makes me.
(hardest project so far, for sure)
