SONAR is a small compilation of choice field recordings taken on a ZOOM H4N Pro with little to no post processing or editing. Each represents a sonic environment with distinct musical characteristics or illuminating properties. Some recordings are very short and dynamic while others present a static home of sound to live in. It is my hope that these recordings will provide an intimate experience with the inherently musical and vastly complex world of environmental noise.
Special thanks to the inspiring sound artists who were present for or performed on these recordings: Marcia Custer, Ryan Martin, Luciann Waldrup, Patrick Modugno, Doug Gent, Will Homer, Wyatt Howland and Elena Juodisius.
Recorded September 2016 - July 2017 in Wilmington, NC, Cleveland, OH, Carrboro, NC, Plattsburgh, NY and Lakewood, OH
