Nature’s Noise was inspired by listening to the layers of sound during a summer’s day. A walk through the forest passing a pond surrounded by magnificent tall trees is contrasted unfavourably with the insidious background noise of a nearby highway. For preference the more gentle ever present chatter of birds or the noiseless passing of the cat leads to a perfectly repeated silhouette image on a cloudless silent night.
