Video: The Clock of Ages

ASMR: The Clock of the Ages – YouTube.

I asked James to read for me. He did a great job. I feel a little awkward when I ask people to read for me. Are they worried that I would do something weird with the clip? Credit them with the wrong name? What are these hesitant collaborators afraid of? I nag to the point of annoyance for all parties, but I know deep within my creative soul that I’d rather be that person who will get the real life stuff that no one wants to be that person.

I think creating from real life (not just synthesizing sounds) gives a limit and a depth. When I have a guest star in something, willingly, creatively, there’s a radiance of shared creation. We made something together with our molecules in the same room at the same time. We both said, this idea might not be the best, but it’s what we have presently and we have the capacity.

If you haven’t recorded with me and you are in the Seattle area, I implore you to get in touch. I’m always on the prowl for new voices, different sounds and aural surprises that will make the stuff strong in its unique perspective.

The audio

Recorded on a 3Dio Freespace Pro Binaural Microphone: reading an excerpt from Clock of the Ages from The Best American Science & Nature Writing 2000: David Quammen, Burkhard Bilger and street noise and a slowed down track of a lawn fountain showroom.
