Synthetic birdsongs, voltage-controlled weather systems, artificial nature soundscapes. Avian Electronics is a series of multichannel sound installations, concerts and albums featuring a variety of electronically produced natural sounds. See the works and music sections of the site for more info on individual works. This page contains sounds lifted from the project. All sounds have been created entirely using various synthesizers.
"Nature as a stable, permanent entity does not exist. We tend to view things that previous generations have created as natural: fields, moors, ditches... and so our unnatural ways are slowly metamorphosing into nature, traditional landscapes, conservation areas. It is a natural process."
Avian Electronics II is in the works.
Here are some samples from the upcoming album:
