Put on you headphones and spare a minute to take a one-minute vacation from the life you are living.
One-minute vacations are unedited recordings of somewhere, somewhen. Sixty seconds of something else. Sixty seconds to be someone else.
This project is inspired by Aaron Ximm, the Quiet American.
A new one-minute vacation will be added each week on Sunday if I can manage it. They will be one-minute field recordings (or one-minute excerpts from longer recordings) which have not been manipulated, edited, composed, or artificially produced.
The ideal recordings captures a unique moment in time and space: a place you just had to be, could never be again, forget you always are. The goal: to transport the listener, if only for a moment, somewhere else.
My notes will include a brief description of the circumstances of recording (this could include place, time, subject, personal significance, the equipment I used, etc) and a maybe a photo, image or drawing.
