Twelve compositions represent some of the huge variety of compositions, approaches and imaginative ways of thinking about sound. Artists from all over the world remix and reimagine field recordings as varied as climate change protests, volcanic hot springs, crashing waves, city soundscapes and desert wastelands.

Musical approaches and compositional techniques include poetry, spoken word, lyrical reinterpretations, ambient electronica and drone, inspiration from reggae protest music and beautiful melodic reinterpretations of found sounds.

The field recordings upon which each composition is based are included as bonus tracks on the album”
