Using field recordings (environment/manipulated bird songs), old piano recordings (memories) and guitar drones (fear), this is an exercise in the limitations of ambient music and it’s trying to approach sound in a dynamic way, working consciously on forms and structures in order to create an illusion of order. ‘Owlbites’ is nocturnal in its character and it's trying to explore the feeling of fear in an unfamiliar environment. On this occasion the field recordings were made after midnight in a abandoned house in the middle of a forest throughout a whole week of “nocturnal terror”. How do we cope with these feelings? We create our own imaginary familiar environment, full of happy memories from the past (childhood) and sounds that comfort us.
