  • Availability:

The masterpiece Weather Report of Chris Watson, an important figure in the field recording scene who was also active as a BBC sound engineer and Hafler Trio, has arrived.Based on materials recorded in Kenya's Masai Lama Game Reserve, Scotland, and the Norwegian Sea, you can fully enjoy the cry of animals that changes as the weather changes. Contains 3 songs.It is a digipak specification.

The weather has created and shaped all our habitats. Clearly it also has a profound and dynamic effect upon our lives and that of other animals. The three locations featured here all have moods and characters which are made tangible by the elements, and these periodic events are represented within by a form of time compression.

This is Chris's first foray into composition using his location recordings of wildlife and habitats --previously he has been concerned with describing and revealing the special atmosphere of a place by site specific, untreated location recordings. For the first time here he constructs collages of sounds, which evolved from a series of recordings made at the specific locations over varying periods of time.
