Album Notes
This version of "(The) Nature (of) Sound" is a mix of the soundtrack to an audio/video installation presented at Jack Straw New Media Gallery in August and September of 2014. Environmental sounds (recorded by Jonathon Storm), traffic sounds, instrumental sounds, and abstract art derived from environmental textures all invite the audience member to reflect on the relationship of humans to nature, both for good and bad. Musicians may add their own material, based on a graphic score; their sounds are processed and added to the evolving ambience.

On the same album, I have included sound-textures from two other installations dealing with nature and the environment: the relentless waves of "Phase Cannon: Violin" (music for a film about ecological catastrophe, and one of my most frequently listened-to pieces online) and the delicate percussions of "Eco Slab Gong", an (unrealized) installation where natural sounds are projected onto a suspended slab of metal. The title is, of course, a pun on "Eco" and "Echo".
