Recordings made at an olive oil mill site on the hills a few kilometers from the charming town of Assisi, Umbria (Italy). Special thanks to the nuns of Monastero Benedettino di Sant’Anna, Bastia Umbra, and Frantoio Le Vecchie Macine, Tordibetto. Coordinates are 43°05’33.9″N 12°34’48.5″E.

“C’era un tronco dalle ricche fronde, d’ulivo, dentro il cortile, florido, rigoglioso; era grosso come una colonna: intorno a questo murai la stanza, finché la finii, con fitte pietre, e di sopra la copersi per bene, robuste porte ci misi, saldamente commesse”. 
– Omero (Odissea, XXIII, vv. 184-204)

“A long-leafed olive tree, strong and vigorous, and thick as a pillar, grew in the courtyard. I built my room of solid stone around it, finished it off with a fine roof, and added tight-fitting timber doors.
-Homer (The Odyssey, XXIII, vv. 184-204)

All recordings made with Soundman Binaural microphones. Please use headphones for the best result.

This work is dedicated to my wife Rachele.
