Scapes - the sights & sopunds of Zane Hrynewich

My First Experiment with Sight and Sound

I have three loves in my life - my family, music and photography. My family has and will always continue to inspire me, motivate me, and fill my life with love and joy. Through music, I have been afforded the opportunity to work with literally thousands of amazingly talented boys, girls, men and women over the years. I have had an off and on love affair with photography since the early 1970's, economics and lack of time often dictating my participation in this pursuit.

I stopped chasing the dream of becoming a recording artist and/or a professional photographer many years ago, but I have always been interested in learning to sculpt with sound and working with images. Advances in digital recording technology over the last decade have resulted in home recording studios capable of producing high-quality tracks. This has revolutionized the world of sound design. The same can be said for digital photography, as technology makes the creation and manipulation of images easier and easier every day.  

It has always been a dream of mine to create soundscapes as companions to my favorite images, but somehow, life kept getting in the way. Well..... now it's time!

My goal was simple - to translate into sound what I hear inside my little hairless head as I look at my images. The result is "Scapes", my first attempt at merging Sight and Sound.
