First digital release of my field recordings signed as sonic matter I dedicated to Lumbarda village from the island of Korčula in South Adriatic.
Location: Lumbarajsko poje / Lumbarda vineyards
Coordinates: 42.920830, 17.177931
The hypnotic chorus of vineyard crickets in the early autumn caught my ear one evening. Having only small handy recorder with me I decided to get to know one particular cricket, which was hanging all alone away from the bunch in the Cebalo-Popić field close by the road.
His stamina and unusual round intonation were very charming.
This is the sonic story of his life and death set in three acts.
Overall recording is 133 min long in which one can hear acoustics of the whole Lumbarda field, once an aquatory and nowadays home of the rare autohton white grapes.
