Pastena – droplets in caves

11-05-16_pastena grotte

During a visit to the caves of Pastena, in an area just nearby the guided path you come across a room where the constant work of the droplets contributes to the formation of new stalactites and stalagmites, returning at the same time a soundscape with shifting and complex articulations of rhythms, timbres, environments. However, a very chatty guide is steadily producing a background to the sound environment of the cave, making it impossible to enjoy the particular acoustics of the place.
