Spring 2021

Personal sound samples from spring 2021

Here you find personal sound samples from spring 2021, spontaneous, original improvisations, soundscapes, and loops by Ulrico on various instruments. Some of these pieces are multi-layered, others are single track. To start, there were but a few of them on this page. But as this merry season progressed, more and more sound samples appeared on this page. They are like plants sprouting and awakening back to the joys of life after a cool winter break of regeneration. First there are little sprouts, later on they bloom.

You may enjoy a sound sample or tonality loop as sound mantra for contemplation or meditation, for upliftment, detoxification, and focusing, or simply as soothing background sound for relaxation and regeneration. If you care to to hum, chant, or sing along, you could do so using the syllable HU. You may pronounce this mantra of soul and love as “hiou” like the English word “hue” or the name Hugh.
