Field Recordings and Experiemental Sounds







Right Here Once: The Soundways of Route 5 2014-2015

A Collection of Field Recordings by Vaughn Whitney Garland 

Right Here Once: The Soundways of Route 5 is a collection of the sounds that one might hear as they drive down Virginia’s historic State Route 5.

Over the course of the summer and fall 2014 months Garland hopes to locate sounds from the farmlands, diners, barber shops, churches, rotary clubs, hunting parties, plantations, and the James River.
