Field Recordings

These are excerpts from my many hours of field recordings. Much of my collection comes from a year of travel and sound gathering as a fellow of the Thomas J. Watson Foundation. During this period I collected sounds in Venezuela, Brazil, United Kingdom, Ireland, The Netherlands, The Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Turkey, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and Canada.
