Birdsong Compositions

I recorded nature sounds up in various locations including Sierra Valley on the East side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California, and at Yuba Pass in the Sierra. I mixed the soundscapes from these two different ecosystems to make one composition, entitled “Layered Dawn Chorus”. Another composition began with a recording of myself saying “Becoming Bird”, then speeding up the tempo until it sounded like a bird. I then recorded 5 separate birdsongs, where I edited birdsongs from each of 5 different birds, creating 5 separate compositions, entitled “Six Birdsong Remix”.
