Forest Park

This was recorded in April 2017 at the Forest Park trail in Portland, OR. I used a high strung resonator guitar and a zoom recorder on a trail that was overlooking a beautiful view of Portland. 

There are lots of nature sounds, some wind, some birds as well as the sounds of passing hikers. Keep your ears open for the Boston Terrier that comes by to say hello.

 *Using Alan Lomax as an inspiration, I'm focusing on a year-long field recording project in 2017, traveling to different locations and making field recordings on a variety of acoustic instruments. 

One recording per month is released on my bandcamp page. In addition to the audio recordings I'll be documenting each location with photos and video footage. 

For an annual fee of $20 you can help support this project and get a new field recording each month.

A Room of Gongs

 
Recorded at Vinny Golia's house in Valencia, CA. The front room is full of gongs, bells and Tibetan singing bowls. The room has slanted, high ceilings, hardwood floors and little carpet. There's a wonderful acoustic sound in this room. The wall of gongs and singing bowls provide constant resonance in the room while the music is played. 

Hope you enjoy! 

A special thank you to Vinny Golia for allowing me to record in his house.
