Winterbeech & Pine


Focusing on wind sounds, I recorded the natural sounds around our home in rural New Hampshire, and created this electronic music composition. Winterbeech and Pine, fits into the general category of Soundscape Composition. In this genre, as defined by Barry Truax, prerecorded environmental sounds are the source of compositional material, but the environmental context is both maintained and utilized by the composer.
