"Talks with Grey Heron" by Robertina Šebjanič

Another great Field Recording artist is Robertina Šebjanič from Slovenia.
The way she works on aquatic sounds is particularly remarkable ... I would say that is her specialty.
I particularly recommend her works entitled "Aquatocene / Subaquatic quest for serenity:)

Stunning work... It had a powerful immersive effect on me  :o

Kairos had published a good 5CDs anthology of Francisco Lopez's works :

I just leaned that Lopez insists that performances take place in darkness, and provides blindfolds where necessary for the audience (and possibly musicians too.)

Patrick Farmer's Apis mellifera is based on the buzzing of honey-bees. It aims to make a music which is imprecise, vague -- inspired by Italo Calvino's conception of Giacomo Leopardi art.

(Wandelwiser/Lucier style stuff, but I must say, I'm rather enjoying it.)

David Dunn's Emergent Life of the Pond is made of field recordings of aquatic instruments. I can assure you that pond life has never sounded so deep before. It comes on a fabulous CD with a sequence of pieces based on renaissance alchemical mysticism called Tabula Angelorum Bonorum -- but don't worry, there's nothing Ferneyhough about it.



There's a Wire article about David Dunn here -- with a free download of his Listening to what I cannot hear.  (Reading that article makes me desperate to see Santa Fe again, I worked for a short time at UC Santa Fe -- loved it!)

"Not many listen though. That's the problem"  - that was a problem with Eve...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8xjImirNkE

« Fifty competitors from 11 US states take part in the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation World Elk Calling Championships, trying to bark, bugle and mew their way to the top with imitations of elk sounds. During the rut, hunters use a variety of bull and cow elk noises to find and lure away their targets. »
