Turkey: Day Nine




Yesterday I bought a little ceramic bird whistle at a market stall outside the underground city of Kaymaklı, which I recorded today in the hotel bathroom in Göreme (Kapadokya), because it was somewhere quiet and resonant. You fill the bird with water and blow into it, and I found that changing the angle of the whistle (or my mouth) changed the pitch, so I had some fun with that too. The track begins with peoples' voices and footsteps in Derinkuyu from yesterday - backwards and forewards, and at the end I applied a granular (pitch altering) delay to the whistle sound.
