This song is an ambient sonic journey starting with natural sounds which morph into the hidden inner world of trees and back again. The piece starts off with a120 degree stereo field recording of wind blowing through aspen trees and surrounding trees in Louisville, Colorado just outside of Boulder. ALL sounds in the other 8 tracks of the recording use the original 30 seconds of audio from the trees as source audio. To create the inner-world sonic soundscape I used a variety of techniques from processing the sound with effects through resynthesizing the harmonic content of the trees to make new playable virtual instruments that allowed me to compose subtle pitched drones.

If the intention of this album is to introduce the listener to artists of which we were previously unaware, it has succeeded. I am already a fan of Chuck Van Zyl and Ombient, but have found some meaningful and some fun songs on here. It is time to explore the creators. kevbird
