Ear to the Earth John Cage Tribute

 

Ear to the Earth has produces an online tribute to John Cage: “As a salute to Cage for his leadership in what Joel Chadabe called “the great opening up of music to all sounds”, and in the spirit of the 100th anniversary year of his birth, we have built a collection of 100 compositions and sounds — 60 compositions, 40 sounds, all based on field recordings, natural and urban, some using traditional instruments and voice — by composers and sound artists around the world. It is a global salute to John Cage.”

Published on their site, you can hear my contribution La vie naturelle which is based on sounds recorded at Torquay, Victoria, Australia.
