Ralph Koper (born 1979, The Netherlands) is a poet and multi-instrumentalist with special interest in making field recordings.
In 2003 his idea of making field recordings originates from the feeling that he wanted to capture encounters while traveling, but not with a camera. Ralph was convinced that soundscapes would give probably an easier access to relive experiences. He worked from the hypothesis of the ability to undergo possible time-traveling with the use of field recordings.
His aim is to catch with the recordings the sound of synchronicity that emerges when various life-forms and elements come together. When this happens, especially when spirituality or trance-states are involved, these recordings are his audible proof that magic exists. Recordings where made in India, Indonesia, Nepal, Peru, Ecuador, Morocco, Turkey, Greece, Portugal and the Netherlands.
