Canto de las aves pampenas. Some time ago I came home with a audio cassette that fascinated me when I was a teenager. The audio in question is called “Canto de las aves pampenas”. With the singing of the birds in mind, I visited with my camera nearby fields. The frames that make up this video are well organized an in a double disjunction (between sound and image on one side, and between past and present, on the other).
