In 2014, I was invited to take part in ‘Arts for Nature’ an live arts event celebrating the ecological diversity of Atherton Wildlife and Nature Meadow, Lancashire, UK. Howzat: An Appeal for Nature (2014) is a sereis of algorithmic sound compositions that radically transforms sounds of the surrounding area. The intention, to raise awareness to the sonic diversity of inhabitants, be it human or non-human, residing in this unique green belt area. The sounds where recorded at different locations around Atherton Wildlife and Nature Meadow. The sounds consist of muffled conversations, barking dogs, birds, cyclists, children playing, a cricket match and the noise of low flying aircraft humming across the sky. The sounds were edited into fragments and processed using a custom built algorithm seeking out hidden musical properties within the sound material. This mini-album consists of the live stems improvised on day of the performance.
