Sarnath (2010)

This piece was created as part of the project The Buddha’s Footprint using field recordings from Buddhist pilgrimage sites in India. The field recordings, made by Francis Booth, include bells, drums and chants from the places where the Buddha lived and taught. The composition explores the use of textures and rhythmic passages to create different types of sonic environments linked to intense and subtle states of mind experienced through meditation practice.
