Echolocations: Canyon CD

Regular price $ 10.00

Andrew Bird & Ian Schneller's Sonic Arboretum comes to the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston for a 2 month exhibition February 4 - May 10 2015. The installation will feature a brand new composition by Andrew called Echolocations: Canyon
Recorded in the Coyote Gulch canyons of Utah, CANYON is first in a series of short films and recordings by Andrew that document site specific compositions in exceptional national and urban environments.
By feeding sonic information into these alternate surroundings, one can discern how echo feedback informs perception of space and ongoing improvisation. After some experimenting in Coyote Gulch it was discovered that C# creates the most echo feedback, especially when it swoops downward taking on an animal call quality like that of a coyote or bat.
