A Sound Sculpture™ is created by amplifying and enhancing the resonant qualities of a natural sound recording and then removing blocks of frequencies until very little is left. One then discovers the ‘jewel’ or ‘heart’ at the centre of the sound.
For example, the ‘Bird Chimes’ album is a natural sound recording of birdsong which has been
‘Sound Sculpted ™’ to reveal that at the heart of these songs, are beautiful angelic chimes. This is a very simple explanation which should give some sense of the process involved.
The following two poetic quotes by Michaelangelo say it much more elegantly and beautifully:
“Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”
“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”
- Michaelangelo Bunnarotti (1475 - 1564)
