"I have always been interested in sounds in general. When reading and teaching about the futurists, I fully agreed that the sound of engines and machines could be as interesting as the sound produced by musical instruments. But not only industrial sounds fascinate me - I also find the sounds of nature very inspiring.
What I love to do is make soundscapes, and I try to give an impression of a certain space. I am fascinated by a lot of so-called sacred places in the world, in etnic cultures, but also in our own cities. I try to recall the atmosphere of such a place, the quietness, the subtile sounds, or simply what's happening. I started with places in Ghent, where I live, and little by little – I have always loved to travel – I began to think - hé, it would be nice to do the same thing at different places on earth. So I started to go to different countries with the purpose of making soundscapes. With our Logos Duo, ever since 1980, I was already travelling around the world to give concerts, and thus I already collected sounds from all continents.
Lately I've been traveling to India and recording the sounds typical in certain regions. You will hear sounds of traffic, of religious ceremonies, of commercial music, mixed with merchant's voices, nature sounds, ...
I asked my friend Graham Lambkin to join me in the creation of these Indian soundscapes. We had previously performed Tamil Nadu and an early version of Indian Weather Trap together in concert at Issue Project Room, NYC, 2011 alongside our friend Françoise Vanhecke. I further invited Graham to make his own Indian soundscape in his own style, using materials gathered online, to bring our CD to a close.
So just sit back quietly and enjoy. Let's all travel together on the wings of sound." - Moniek Darge
