Dusk

stereo electroacoustic (2012)

Dusk incorporates the low frequency sounds generated by seafloor 'black smoker' hydrothermal vents, transposed bat calls, and percussionist William Winant playing a tam tam.

The vent recordings were generously made available to me by Dr. Timothy Crone of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University, and were recorded in the Main Endeavor Field on the Juan de Fuca mid-ocean ridge off the coast of Washington State; the bat recordings are from the library of Avisoft Bioacoustics, Berlin.
