TOM’s Journey.

An Uncut Composition for 3 People and 1 Tube.

We found TOM by the side of the dust road. TOM is a tube that is supposed to be buried underneath the road, ready to channel rain water to the valley – just in case. Because the area of El Polell in Spain is extremely dry, it rarely rains, and TOM – not in the ground and without water – is without purpose. We improvised on that purpose, taped a recording device and mics into TOM’s belly, brought the tube back to the water and into the dry.
The field recording composition portrays TOM’s journey and his natural habitat by sound. It is uncut and recorded in real time. It was created during Audiotalaia Summer Camp 2018 by Joan Cot Ros, Martin Pineda, and Carina Pesch.
