The Insensible Crevice

Almost all of my music contains field-recorded sounds. When I first started my career, I incorporated the sounds of water and birdsong simply because I found them pleasing. But after years of doing the same thing, they even began to seem trite. However, as if obsessed, I continued to incorporate field recordings, layering them with ambient-appropriate drones, synths, and the like.
To be frank, I am completely bored with this approach. So why not stop? Why continue to pursue it? Because I believe that a calm scene, unaware that it is being recorded or written about, is always beautiful. I believe that there is a small, invisible crevice between the scene and the artist oneself, and that is where the beauty resides. Recently, I have been recording not sounds that I recognize as pleasant, but rather ordinary moments that almost no one pays attention to.
Once I have that, they lead me to the completion of the song. All I have to do is follow the instructions that the crevice gives me.
