Manufactured Jungle

Whispering in the Leaves is a fascinating new sound installation by stalwart field-recordist (and ex Cabaret Voltaire member) Chris Watson. Through the use of field recordings typical of a South American rainforest, Watson has carefully recreated a jungle soundscape.

Let’s hope that in a few decades this isn’t the only way we’ll be able to hear a jungle soundscape.

Thanks to Tim @ Music of Sound for the tip.

  1. Thank you so much for posting this; it really sums up the field recording “experience”. He speaks so well … “whispering in the leaves”, “fishing for sound”. Beautiful.
