For the garden performance you will hear field recordings from sicily and calabria in southern italy.  the main sounds are a bell ringing inside a church, a group of women singing recorded from outside of a church, waves from the ionian sea recorded at foot level with a microphone on each leg, water drips from a 400 year old gutter in the town of Patti, and birds recorded through a bamboo fence in the palermo botanical garden.
