    A Note from the Artist:
    This project is created entirely from naturesound field recordings collected while I was the artist-in-residence at the Bogong Centre for Sound Culture (BCSC), located in the mountains of Australia’s Alpine National Park. Side A is the uninterrupted sounds of nature as the forest comes to life at sunrise. Side B is a composition of manipulated field recordings exploring man’s intervention in nature. The intent is for each side to bring an appreciation for the natural world and a sense of peace through focused listening and reflection. This was the experience I had while listening and recording in the mountains and I am excited to share that through the release of this cassette.


    Side A: Bogong Nature
    Side B: Bogong Intervention
