From an August Evening

by Rich Bitting

The connections between sound, emotion, and memory are very strong. The sibilant hiss of wind in the trees or a warbling bird song can trigger our cellular memory of a specific time and place. This is a collection of soundscape compositions that conjures these pale wisps of memory.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The connections between sound, emotion, and memory are very strong. The sibilant hiss of wind in the trees or a warbling bird song can trigger our cellular memory of a specific time and place." from an august evening" is a collection of soundscape compositions that conjures these pale wisps of memory.

"From an August Evening" is composed using a field recording of Fernald Nature Preserve during a warm August evening. The insect choruses create an ambient accompaniment for imagined spirit voices.

"What the Bees Know" was written to accompany my visual art contribution to the group exhibition “Mind Gardens” at Caza/Sikes Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio. This composition is based on field recordings of beehives* and explores the massed sounds of individual bees.*

"A Barn in Halifax" is a soundscape composition comprised of a field recording of my family’s barn in Halifax, Pennsylvania. The creaks and groans of the structure provide a polyphony of percussive sounds to the background ambiance.

"One Afternoon in Randall Hollow" is based on the soundscape of Randall Hollow in Tioga State Forest in Pennsylvania. It is perhaps, one of the quietest locations in the Pennsylvania Wilds. This is a meditation on my memory of that special place.

*Thanks to Dale Myers, Scott Bruno, and Rob McCullough for their valuable assistance.
