Echoes of a Sonic Habitat
MetadataShow full item record
Echoes of a Sonic Habitat is a forty-minute work for small ensemble in five movements. While the artist-in-residence at Crater Lake National Park in 2012, I created a series of field recordings that became the basis for this piece. In the second and fifth movements, the recordings are integrated into the musical material. The remaining movements (I, III, and IV) surface deeper structures within field recordings but do not include the sounds themselves. The work explores three habitats at Crater Lake National Park by evoking the evolution of sounds in these spaces throughout a 24-hour period and serves as a documentary of my experiences while I explored the soundscapes of the park.
