100 FOUNTAINS comprises 100 sound files of high precise quality stereo recordings of various fountains size, type, and perspective (including 15 hydrophone recordings) recorded over the span of 1 year.
While fountains played a major role throughout history by their functionality of supplying water, they nowadays still operate as a central element in the landscape of towns and cities although diverging from their initial purposes. Their sound sooth the soul and embellish the modern soundscape by masking intrusive noises. They embody life and bring people together. This library of sounds is an homage to these “super-natural” human constructions, in an attempt to capture with fidelity the diversity of their sonic palette.
