When both of my boys were being born, I recorded discreetly their first breaths and first screams along with the surrounding environment ... all those medical machines with their electromagnetic imprints, all that beeping and heartbeat throbbing, hum and fuzz inside and out of the maternity hospital. First I thought to create a small piece for each baby, to welcome them here, to this strange dimension, to life - but somehow these sounds were too close to the bone; I was not able to compose with "it" without being influenced by my extremely personal experience. So I
left the idea to ripen. And here it is ...


released October 2, 2015

Composed by Slavek Kwi, April - June 2013.

All sounds were generated from recordings within maternity hospital environment in Cavan, Ireland - including electromagnetic fields of diverse medical machines, heartbeat pulsations, first breath and first cry of newborns (except sound of wren was recorded outdoors during first walk 14.10.2010).
