Meditational Sound Source
The sounds of water are used in meditation to create a calm atmosphere, to mask distracting noises, and to soothe our mind. This time, we hiked across Madeira - a Portuguese island in the middle of the Atlantic - to record the sound of levadas. Levadas are man-made channels that carry water from the central mountains to the peripheral agricultural fields. These channels are often positioned to take water from a mountain waterfall basin - a source of intense noise - and then quietly travel through breathtaking landscapes. Pictures taken during the sampling session are available here.
