Catlin Wood and the Changing Grovescape

Winds were forecast by the National Weather Bureau to be at 10-15 mph, which are pretty good conditions for recording. However, at upon arrival at 5:45 or so, there was no wind whatsoever. Only un...

20th Century and then some inspired by Trees

Since we are in the middle of winter (at least here in New England), I thought it may be a good time to post some recordings of compositional works by 20th and 21st century composers that have been inspired by trees. On these really cold evenings when there is nothing left to do but keep warm in the...

Part II: the Sacred Spring near the Sacred Cave

This is Part II in a series of two soundscapes that I captured at what is considered a sacred site in northwestern Massachusetts.
