Sauve Garde (translated as "safeguard") references the inscription above the gate of a cloister in Brugge, Belgium. Inspired by this locale, Sauve Garde is a longform ambient soundtrack featuring field recordings made in various locations around Bruges and Brussels including Station Brugge, the Markt, and elsewhere. Featuring cacaphonies of voices, bells, horse-drawn carts and the sound of getting turned around in the Brugge train station, Sauve Garde creates a sense of place and memory, evoking both a specific moment and a universal experience of travel and finding oneself in a new place.

Originally featured as an original performance by Eric Pietras on his radio show Sounds In The Dark.
