Intro / I first met San Cristóbal in 2007 when I was making sound for a documentary / I was enchanted with its colors and the sounds in the streets, in the markets, in the churches / I returned in 2008 for another documentary and continued to record the sounds I found on my way, the rituals, the traditions, the music, the dances / It seems that every day there is something to celebrate because you can always hear fireworks in the sky / In 2011 I returned for the third time and my collection of sounds grew, I became fascinated with the nature, the languages, the stories / I was completely in love with San Cristobal and it must have been love that brought me back because in 2015 I met a beautiful girl from San Cristóbal and I have been living with her since in a house in the mountains outside of town / When you live in the silence of the forest the contrast with the sounds of the town are amazing, a wide range from nothing to something //

07:04 / September 18, 2016 / Illegal Felling Of Pines In Cuxtitali / 16.742948, -92.613484 / There is nothing sadder than waking up to the sound of a tree falling in the woods / Behind our house there is a forest reserve that was invaded by more than 40 Chamula families who are deforesting the woods so quickly. I have tried to talk to them but they argue that the trees are angels that God sent them and that is why they cut them for sustenance / The landlady told me not to mess with them because they are brave people and even our house could get burned / In less than 2 years they have almost completely depleted what was considered a forest reserve //
