Machines wake up at 10am in Ile d'Orléans

The piece is an extract of a recording from a walk done over two days around Iles d’Orléans, Quebec province in Canada on July 26-27, 2019. Here is the first day, near the Island entrance.  My walk begins at 7:30 in the morning and I witnessed the awakening of mechanical life, engines in this small island of 42 miles. The island is on the St. Lawrence river. The economic activities are essentially agricultural and tourism. During my rythmic walk, I was amazed to discover all this sounds, making a composition in the pretty landscape. The duration is 8 minutes.
