Field Recorded MP3s

Many netlabels are devoted to electronic music, and much of that music is based on field recordings, but few of those netlabels are devoted to field recordings. Enter, the most recent release on which, Lori Beckstead and Dave Rose‘s Winanga-li: Australian Soundscapes, includes bird calls at dawn, frogs after rainfall and, the real keeper, the sound of the Sydney Orchestra Hall as the musicians tuned up (MP3). Also among the album’s 11 tracks is a “composite,” combining two different field recordings, both recorded at the same locale under different circumstances (MP3).
