Sonic Encounters S03-02: Turning Back the Rainforest Clocks

Update – Sonic Ecounters is not longer a podcast but an album series. Here is a blog post on this. This song is on available to my subscribers right now https://markmosher.bandcamp.com/album/sonic-encounters-volume-03.

I just released a new Sonic Encounters soundscape podcast episode “Turning Back the Rainforest Clocks“. Listen on Soundcloud, Apple Podcasts, or with your favorite podcatcher.

Story:

Quite some time ago an alien child instantiated our reality using some silly game they found on their parent’s hand-me-down computer. As time went on they noticed the rainforests were being destroyed for a variety of reasons which would soon end the simulation. The child was quite attached to some of the people in the simulation and of course didn’t want to have restart the simulation all over again from beginning. So, without their parent’s permission, the child opted to buy the in-app purchase to heal the rainforests by turning back the rainforest clocks. Play now continues.

Composer Notes:

Improvised using original field recordings as sources from Australia including the city of Melbourne, and The Healesville Sanctuary (www.zoo.org.au/healesville/).

Cover Art Notes:

I manipulated a photo I took while walking to through the rainforest of Great Otway National Park on the way to Henderson Falls. Some of the trees are estimated to be over 200 years old.

More Rehearsal’s Fund Raising Objectives

process-reversal

During its first fundraising cycle, Process Reversal (PR) aims to develop the resources needed to achieve four major goals. These objectives are integral to PR’s mission to preserve, promote and harness the expressive potential of photochemical image making.

Education –

Process Reversal’s education initiatives have two major tracks

 

  1. Photochemical Image-Making – Process Reversal is committed to facilitating and demystifying technical processes of these practices. This is and will continue to be achieved primarily through extensive workshop programming. In concert with these workshop sessions, PR develops innovative new tools designed for small-scale production. These devices are used in workshop environments to advance a new technological paradigm in image making that is well suited to this post-industrial age. These activities serve a primary aim of our mission: to promote the continued use of photochemical processes by filmmakers, artists, hobbyists, and the public at large by providing the training, the exposure, and the opportunity required.
  2. Media Literacy – In an increasingly image-driven era, Process Reversal is committed to promoting media literacy in all age groups. To be literate is to be able to read and write, so it follows that media literacy includes the ability to make as well as to interpret. Photochemical processes are the antecedents to contemporary image making, and to be exposed to these techniques is also to better understand other technologies, including digital tools. Rather than offer image making experiences that are defined by the content needs of media industries, Process Reversal provides a critical and historical context that fosters agency and understanding across the entire gamut of image making. To this end, PR seeks to launch a K-adult outreach program dedicated to filling the photochemical media literacy gap. Continue reading and donate here

Photos from Concréte Mixer Concert at University of Denver’s Gates Concert Hall at Lamont School of Music

Back in October I announced that I’d be performing in the Concréte Mixer Concert at University of Denver’s gloriious Gates Concert Hall at Lamont School of Music. It was a music career highlight for me and just a fantastic show and audiance.

I finally got around to creating a flickr photo album on flickr. I also scanned the program if you’d like to learn more about the this Music Concréte series including details about the pieces and the technology.
