Although it appears to be a natural landscape, all sounds included in this soundscape have actually been sung: they are voice creations, the process consisting in choosing the sounds one by one, slowing them down or speeding them up to fit them to the register of the human voice and then memorizing them, singing small fragments of sound, recording these and returning them to their original speed and then replacing each of the natural sounds with the corresponding sung version.
