foundsoundscape live radio

Along with hundreds of other amazing artists (including creator Janek Schafer, Brian Eno, Pauline Oliveros, Maggi Payne, Christina Kubisch, Charlemagne Palestine, Scanner and many many others!) I contributed some personal field recordings to this project.  I recorded my backyard on April 4, 2015, from 4:30-5:30 am during the Blood Moon total lunar eclipse.  Do you hear it today?  Or maybe it will be part of tomorrow’s foundsoundscape?
