Reina Del Rio Amazonas

Revisiting the art of music to use in integration with my other work was something I had been thinking about for years. I finally took the leap to purchase my first synthesizer in 2019, a 1986 AKAI AX-60, and eventually my first drum machine. However, finding my first project to experiment with adding sound took some additional time.

Once I began planning a 2 week trip to Peru that would include several nights in the Amazon rainforest, I felt this was the inspiration that I was looking for. I recorded the sounds of the jungle (as heard at the beginning of the video), I filmed birds flying over the river, trees, flowers; many beautiful and surreal moments that I felt incredibly blessed to experience.

Upon returning home (a mere hours before Peru closed their borders due to COVID-19) I used my newfound quarantine time to finally experiment with sounds and video editing to compose a music video that would encapsulate my experience in the Amazon.
