The drummers went back up the path and through the fields to there positions. Tripods and Zooms and drums, luckily we had some hands to help. It was a good day and between 12.00 and 17.00 h. there are not that many cars on the road…they too have there echo, but we don´t want those sounds.

Everyone is ready, everyone knows the signals:
If you put up you´re hand, the microphone is in position.
If the Michael beats the woodblock three times, the microphone has to be switched on, you have to get in position and raise you´re hand again.
When he beats the woodblock ones this is the signal that will help us synchronize the different tapes.
Michael Jüllich starts.
Three beats, recordings have to be stopped. And we start again…same procedure.
We made 4 different recordings. The six beats meant we were ready for today.
