This is a maypole of floating sounds, sonic rumours and wandering soundscapes. They are neither soundmarks nor sounds of cultural importance which merit preservation. They are just short bits of sonic memory, no more than one minute long each, which I have recorded whilst running after tennis balls never managed to catch.

Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport
In February - March 2012 I spent some time at the New York University invited by the clarinetist Esther Lamneck. We worked together on my piece "7 Spaces of Ether". I also had the opportunity to work with the young and talented musicians of the New Music and Dance Ensemble who improvised on some of my works.
In 2010, after an invitation from Otto Castro, I spent a few days in Tortuguero rain forest with Gregorio Jimenez Paya trying to record howler monkeys. During the rainy season it was almost impossible to avoid rain drops in the recordings. Amazingly verdant landscapes.

Mexico City or Morelia?
During Visiones Sonoras Festival
Well, to tell the truth, I'm not sure whether this plaza is in Mexico City or Morelia, Michoacan in central Mexico. Visiones Sonoras Festival in 2007 took place in both cities. It was certainly after a number of tequila sangritas! A company of men and women, having fun late at night, 2007.
