BASEbot 005 – Cheryl Leonard’s Antarctic Sound and Music (sound recording)

In 2009,Composer, performer, improviser, recordist and instrument builder Cheryl Leonard travelled to Palmer Station, Antarctica in search of sounds and music. She returned with a wealth of recordings, stories, and materials for building musical instruments. Cheryl shared her work at BASEbot on Feb 21, 2010. In her own words, Cheryl “creates experimental music using amplified natural objects as instruments.”If you want to get the drift, just imagine improvising a windswept landscape using a penguin bone screwed to driftwood, a contact mic, and a loop of light cotton rope . Or bowed limpet shells. Or evoking a flow of brash ice with resonant stones worn smooth by century after century of nesting penguins. I encourage you to check out Cheryl’sAntarctic Trip Blog. She’s a fantastic storyteller, and there are a lot of great photos. Being a blog, the first page is the most recent, meaning it’s about the gigs after the trip rather than the trip. So you might start with the First post...

BASEbot 003 – James LeBrecht [sound recording]

Sound Designer James LeBrecht shares a few of his most favorite and most personally meaningful sound recordings. Here’s the setup: Jim is sitting in the center of Dan Dugan’s control panel, with Pro Tools behind him and faders for a quadrophonic monitoring system. On and off, he talks and plays sounds which he’s gathered for the occasion. About twenty people sit, listen and discuss. We start with sounds from an exhibit installation about hybrid California cultures titled Trading Traditions. Over the course of an hour and a quarter, we hear among other things Foghorns, quad recordings from San Francisco’s Tenderloin district, a Thanksgiving dinner, and evocative insects and frogs. Later James talks about upcoming projects, including a documentary he’s mixing on the staging of the opera Doctor Atomic. There’s a discussion of the sound of air itself clipping. At around 68 minutes, we go around an mention favorite sounds. On a technical note: It was a hot evening in San Francisco ...

BASE Radio: Soundscapes Real and Imagined from the San Francisco Bay Area

Soundscapes Real and Imagined from the San Francisco Bay Area – A two-hour mix of soundscape recordings and compositions native to the San Francisco Bay Area. A 2-hour sound collage for radio hosted by Jeremiah Moore and Aaron Ximm Orignally broadcast February 22, 2009 on free103point9.org, an episode of Giant Ear, the radio voice of the New York Society for Acoustic Ecology. Last August, Jonny Farrow, Ned Mooney and Andrea Polli of our New York-based sister organization New York Society for Acoustic Ecology (NYSAE) [1] were visiting San Francisco. We had a meet up and mind-meld, out of which came an idea: Could BASE produce a two-hour show for Giant Ear))), NYSAE’s monthly radio program on free103point9.org [2]? The theme of our show was very clear from the start: we would focus on the sounds of the place where we live, the greater San Francisco Bay Area. We live in an area full of clear soundmarks and vast contrasts juxtaposed. The Bay shores of Alcatraz Island, the swells of th...
