Re: Sound portraits; Mohawk Trail State Forest

Ed and Joe; Actually, I think that human noise is not just an isolated American issue but instead a noise pollution problem globally. We can already read about how it is changing the most remote areas of Alaska, primarily due to tourism. Human noise is infecting every sphere of our planet; I have a ...

Re: Drawing Trees

Ed, I am glad that you have found your way back into journaling, and that it was through your friends granddaughter.

Sound portraits; Mohawk Trail State Forest

Dear NTS: I recently spent a few days up in Mohawk State Forest. Unfortunately, there was not much wind to speak of until the third day - the day I had to leave. Still, I did capture a few recordings that give a sense of the sounds you may find at different points of the park. In the near future, I ...

Re: World Premier of "Timberline" April 26th 2014

Hey Brian,
I am going to record the performance of Timberline at the concert on the 26th.
Afterwards, I will be able to share the recorded music with everyone once I have uploaded it to my youtube channel. I will definitely post it here for the NTS!

Re: Gallery Exhibit April 3 - July 1, 2014

Thanks Larry!

Here is how things are looking; I was at the gallery yesterday to set things up, and the soundscapes sound really nice in the space - very meditative.
