MEDA101 – Around the Campfire

Where am I from?

From my last post, I showed the visuals that come to mind when being asked that particular question. However, for this project, I had to think a bit further and change my perspective a little.

For the sound part of this question, I chose to pick a particular place from my previous remoscopes that creates the feeling of being home for me. There was one place in particular that came to mind: the campfire.

The campfire is an important part of camping for me. It is the centrepiece of the land, a place where people are always around, somewhere for you to think, somewhere for people to come together and drink a few too many and a place to share stories, music and laughter.

For this assessment, I wanted to capture the contrast between the serenity that falls over the camp when the fire is lit as well as the busy and loud nature it creates. To do this I chose to include a number of sounds to overlap in this piece that were both soothing (the fire and music) and loud (dogs barking and people talking).
