I had just the field recording for this. It was recorded in early 2011 at a garden center / drug store near my house. The sprinkler was on a timer and was watering trees and shrubs late in the evening, and I heard it while exiting the store so I ran home and got my portable digital audio recorder and got about 8 minutes along with bird and parking lot sounds while sitting in my car.
For this piece, I carved out a little over 2 minutes of the field recording then added some of the rhythm source I used in Disquiet0020 Nodebeat, a looped bit of the train sound I used in Disquiet0002 Duet, along with some background color used in Disquiet0001 Ice.
Had to mix it all so the non-sprinkler rhythms wouldn't overpower the source, as advised. I think the Nodebeat rhythm is very complimentary even if it and the sprinkler regularly go out of phase but I like it when things go out of phase.
The inspiration for this track came from the opening of chapter 17 of William Gibson's 1986 novel Count Zero.
