Errington Woods, England From the Artists: 'Home' was recorded at Errington Woods, near New Marske
on the North East Coast of England at around 19:13 hours. Besides
an overgrown bike track, off the beaten path, it is possible to
glimpse the sprawling expanse of industry that is Teesside from
the foothills of Marske to as far as Newcastle to the North on
a clear evening such as this. The steel and petrochemical works
(just audible as a constant hum in the recording) can never be
shut down for fear of collapse, and it is these contrasting synthetic
and organic landscapes that coexist to form 'Home'.

Urban Rural Noise Conflict Location
Burlinton, North Carolina, USA From the Artists:
Do we have an ideal of what a forest sounds like? Peaceful and quiet where we can escape the urban noise? Even in a deep rural environment the urban noise attempts to gain control. The aural detritus of everyday life becomes harder and harder to ignore.

The Wind in Your Mind Location
New York City, NY, USA From the Artists:
In the city our connection to the natural world lies in our creativity. In essence, it is a form of believing and of faith that we are part of nature. This piece is compiled from found-sounds in hopes of creating a feeling of this inner experience of nature that travels with us as we move through the urban landscape.

Peace Park Location
Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, Alberta,
Canada From the Artists:
Spanning territories both in the United States of America and Canada,
Waterton-Glacier is the only park in the world to be declared as a UNESCO
World Heritage Site, an International Peace Park, and a Biosphere Reserve.
This piece was recorded on a particularly windy day, situated near a
rapidly flowing river. The cacophony of natural sounds, paired with
dissonant airline traffic looming overhead presents an ominous vision in a
reserve dedicated to peaceful coexistence.
