Fathom - Airs May 24th
We'll listen to extended field recordings from the Polar regions of the earth. Douglas Quin is an award-winning sound designer, naturalist and composer. His latest project is called "Fathom." It's an album of minimally edited underwater field recordings released on Twin Cities' own Taiga Records. Fathom contains four underwater soundscapes—two each from the Arctic and Antarctic. The recordings have been gathered over a period of 15 years, capturing an extraordinary palette of sonic voices, events, spaces, and textures. To the human ear, these soundscapes are haunting and otherworldly; yet they are very much of this world - though out of earreach... Until now.
