Chris Watson Interview

This Chris Watson Interview is a must watch for anyone interested in field recording, sound design or general innovations in sound art practice. Watson (who I have blogged about before) is arguably the world’s best field recordist and his tips and ideas are definitely worth a quick listen.

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.
