Ambientblog is very proud to present this exclusive download from Michel Banabila: a 38 minute soundscape created for Gerco de Ruijter‘s installation called Dissolve.
This download also includes 10 still images from the Dissolve installation.
Dissolve is an installation by landscape photographer and filmmaker Gerco de Ruijter, showing landscape images filmed in the Alamosa Valley, Colorado, near the Great Sand Dunes. The shore of the mountain lake is shown in time-lapse images of one full day, from early morning darkness to nightfall, comprised into 4 minutes.
Using animation technique, the reverse image is added, so the mirrored landscape changes position with the real at about three-quarters of the movie. From there, the next sequence starts in mirrored mode until it is swapped into its original mode. This way, the images are shown in endless succession.
Banabila‘s Dissolve is a gently evolving soundscape of repeating notes that appear at irregular intervals, embedded in multi-layered drones and deep rumbling sub-bass sounds. A soundscape one can lose itself in, an atmosphere enhancer that can be put on repeat – and thus it’s a perfect companion to De Ruijter’s detached landscape stills.
