  • GNSession 48 – Manuel Antonio Dusk | GreenNoise – Spreading the Voice of Nature
    GreenNoise 6 00 pm The sunny weather wasn t going to last forever in this showing rainy season A couple of hours after our noon session winds picked up and started blowing grey tropical clouds towards the shore Lightning began what seemed like the perfect tropical storm The sky turned grey and rainfall poured silencing everyone and everything around Lightning and consequent thunder rattled the land as the great storm took control of our visit We let the weather settle before we ventured into the forest Damp leaves dripped with purified water The sky turned from a powerful blue to a deep black as dusk turned its face The floor was covered with wet critters and lively toads that seemed to come to life with the overflowing water As drops drum through leaves the sky seems to settle down Thunder fills the atmosphere as if saying good bye for the moment The forest floor drains pure water that fulfills a new cycle As we set our mic we greatfully wrap up our visit to Manuel Antonio The sounds of Dusk behold a magical harmony that prizes our visit to this amazing park Category GN Sessions Tags manuel antonio 0 Comment

  • GNSession 47 – Manuel Antonio Noon | GreenNoise – Spreading the Voice of Nature
    2012 by GreenNoise 1 18pm After Dawn the sun shined brightly over this humid jungle The air was thick and heavy We took our gear and strolled across the beach We headed towards the Catedral Trail which would take us around the whole the park Manuel Antonio is the smallest National Park in Costa Rica and has been rated in fifth place along the worlds best National Parks for animal sighting Although this time the path led us through a shy jungle It bordered the parks cliffs which fall into the deep blue ocean Viewpoint after viewpoint we admired the scenery as we searched for the perfect sound The hot climate and the ringing cicadas gave a summer feeling except for the increasing thunder that sounded near by We got to a spot that seemed to combine various sounds A strip flowed slowly and quietly The ocean crashed steadily against the rocks and thunder rolled above In the distance howlers sounded as if greeting a possible rainstorm We ventured down to the beach again to enjoy the clear blue ocean that flows along the energy of this Noon Category GN Sessions Tags manuel antonio 0 Comment s SIGN UP FOR

  • From the Jungle to the Big City. A mural in NYC | GreenNoise – Spreading the Voice of Nature
    receive some love it was ready for us and we were almost ready for her Normality finally returned to the city on a Saturday The job was paralysed for almost a whole week but with electricity and water back on everything came to movement again Trains were reactivated gradually and within moments everything took its accelerated pace We didn t wait any longer and got back on our feet to retake on this mission We produced hundreds of GreenNoise stickers and began to spread the voice of the tropical forest in the Big Apple We managed to begin buying the materials we needed and we rented a van to transport us all to work at the site Only the essential tracing patterns we shipped from California were still lost in the post storm chaos but they were about to appear The next day we began to mobilize all the materials to the site First we had to go pick up a scaffold that was in a 6th or 7th floor of a building We also met Fernando a colleague of our friend David that would help us with this project We picked up some paint and brushes and then headed toward the building where we d get the rest of the paint After we had the van loaded we drove to the work site Our new friends at the art gallery would lend us space to store all equipment scaffolding ropes buckets dozens of cans of oil paint gallons of paint thinner and oil gloves jackets shoes brushes and rollers We began to work without hesitation now that we had all equipment on site We started on Monday First we had to paint a white base coat over the entire wall This would only happen with the lower half since we did not have access to the roof top of the building yet and we couldn t hang the scaffold So we started where we reached with our heights plus the help of a ladder and the van This first part was pretty easy pretty quick The next day we went back to the wall with the tracing patterns and began with the marking of the image on the white base coat This is accomplished by placing the rolls on the wall according to the map image and using graphite powder As you unroll the patterns over the wall you trace over the image with powdered graphite Graphite passes through perforations that were burnt on paper and ends at the white wall As this happens a second person rolls the pattern at the other end Once this is completed the image is outlined with a permanent marker It is a very mechanical process and it must be very precise to achieve photo realistic proportions on the painting With our hands full of graphite and still counting with a few hours of light we painted the first strokes of color on the famous wall Things were going well everyone was with thinking positive This part is more visual The wall had already been outlined These lines work as guides for color contrasting Using a printout of the image we proceed to fill in the blanks Almost like those colouring books but gigantic Base colours have to be mixed previously Then paint oil is based to allow a better consistency por paint to mix We managed to start with colour at least as a demonstration of the process and soon darkness fell But the project had begun and it was now unstoppable Or so we thought until rumour began about a new storm headed towards us The weather looked strange it was really really cold and forecasts indicated the worst for the next day But no no not for us we thought The next morning was very dark It was an important day since we would finally meet the pastor of the church and we were finally going to be able to get on the roof and place the scaffold and continue painting the upper part of the wall We got to Brooklyn and what was said was done the forecast of a storm seemed to be correct The temperature was below zero and the rain would not let us paint Oil paints do not work on wet surfaces but we had some other things to do We got to meet the pastor We told him about our project our mission to bring the voice of the forests of Costa Rica to the whole world through sounds and images that remind us of that life that we cherish We spoke to him about Costa Rica and its natural resources We told him about the meaning of the images that we would paint about each animal that was in it we explained everything He understood our message and appreciated the project So we got up the roof of the church to plan the scaffold mounting When we got to the top the rain was getting stronger and stronger Tree branches of trees that had been uprooted by the hurricane were still on the roof This moment was fundamental in our progress but our work was interrupted by the new storm that was on the way We did not spend much longer on the roof and the first snow flakes began to fall We lived through this winter s first snowfall what else could happen Rain became snow and we left the job site to resume the next day The next day the city was completely different It was totally covered with snow about a foot deep It was awesome we had already survived a hurricane and now this snow Once at the site we noticed the storm had caused some damage to our work Some paint had been washed and the entire floor was covered with icy snow To continue we had to clear the parts where we would work because if not we would freeze our feet In no time but feeling
