‘The Lost Brothers Of Saco Do Céu’ – Jason Lee
‘Dawn: The tail end of a storm. Two brothers wash ashore. One died a couple of days before. They enter a village.’
‘The Lost Brothers Of Saco Do Céu’ is my reimaging of Tilla Martin’s orignal recording made in Saco do Céu, Ilha Grande, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – Bamboos and their leaves in the wind of a tropical forest.
My response raises up from seafaring myths and legends, storms and song, made with field recordings from the Beara and Mizen Peninsulas, West Cork, Ireland.
You can go directly to Tilla Martins and my response by typing Ilha Grande in the Sound Search box as seen below. Category ‘Forests‘

For the curious:
Please consider signing up to The Saloon, access monthly private posts, more soundscapes for Based On Real Events available for download, alongside the stories, photographs, video and new paintings.
I post in The Saloon at the start of each month as new work for this exhibiton evolves.
I’m on Twitter sharing and tagging links to Based On Real Events helps.
Based On Real Events is my next exhibition in the making. Paintings, photographs, film and sound recordings are going in to this one. It’s expensive, by my own choice, I’ve found a delicate balance within subsistence, going without to go forward. If you want to or can help out. Truly grateful via PayPal. Include your address and I’ll send you on a little rarity.
Any or all above appreciated.
Thank you. X
I thought these photos were lost for good. It wasn’t a good feeling. I was beginning to accept it.
New soundscape / video ‘The Interference’ will be released in The B.o.R.e. Saloon 31 March 2018.
A sequenced 60+ photos, a portrait, made the dawn after a twelve hour tête-à-tête, on the 11 / 11 / 07, with the legendary Fergus O’Farrell / Interference with a new soundscape, built from field recordings.
Three years ago I thought these photos were lost for good when an OS update locked me out of an encrypted hard drive. I thought the drive had been corrupted.
There’sa post up now with a more on these photos.

New Post Up On The B.o.R.e. Saloon…
‘A rolling stone gathers no moss’ a proverb repeatedly turned on it’s head.
While writing this I heard news of Dennis Edwards’ passing.
“Papa was a rollin’ stone. Wherever he laid his hat was his home. And when he died All he left us was alone”
“A vagabond, roamer, wanderer, street-walker, highway-beater; a rolling stone, one that does nought but runne here and there, trot up and downe, rogue all the country over.”
転がる石に苔むさず (‘Korogaru ishi ni koke musazu’).
