Vothonas - remote recording 3-5-2015
Village of Vothonas, in a valley in the centre of the island of Santorini
Mazi is an artist collective focused on alternative documentary forms. Founded by Alyssa Moxley and Ramona Stout, the group is currently working on the development of Kinisi Festival, an event that brings together folk musicians and experimental sound artists from around the Balkans on the island of Santorini. Mazi will be organizing listening events, installations, and performances on the island throughout the summer.
We will set up microphones and a VLF receiver along the ridge within the center of the village of Vothonas, a community of several hundred people nestled in a valley in the centre of the island of Santorini. Some of the sounds we can expect to hear will be waking animals, song birds, donkeys, chickens, dogs, wind in the trees and grass, and gravel.
