Fazenda Pasto Grande Alexandre Klinke

Fazenda Pasto Grande is a farm located in the countryside of Sao Paulo state in Brazil — an old coffee plantation from the 19th century that was abandoned for many years until it was partially restored in the late 1990s. The piece features sounds recorded over the course of two days in March 2011. The particular soundscape of the place has very little interference of technology or people, aside from a few cars and airplanes, and the chatter of its few inhabitants. The idea of making this multi-channel piece was to transport the listener to that place, either via a realistic representation of its soundscape, or through abstracted sounds that relate to the bodily experience of being there.
