“There is… the fertile silence of awareness, pasturing the soul… the silence of peaceful accord with other persons or communion with the cosmos,” Paul Goodman wrote in his 1972 taxonomy of the nine kinds of silence. “But where does the modern soul go to pasture on awareness and commune with the cosmos in a civilization increasingly savaged by

“There is… the fertile silence of awareness, pasturing the soul… the silence of peaceful accord with other persons or communion with the cosmos,” Paul Goodman wrote in his 1972 taxonomy of the nine kinds of silence. “But where does the modern soul go to pasture on awareness and commune with the cosmos in a civilization increasingly savaged by noise?”

Open your ears and allow yourself to step into this sound world. Close your eyes and be enveloped by the sound.

A pale cold glow of the sun tints the early morning landscape with barely visible light. The newly uncovered architecture of trees etches the snowy hillside. It’s as if for a moment, sound and light are fused.

The connections between sound, emotion, and memory are very strong. The sibilant hiss of wind in the trees or a warbling bird song can trigger our cellular memory of a specific time and place." from an august evening" is a collection of soundscape compositions that conjures these pale wisps of memory.

"From an August Evening" is composed using a field recording of Fernald Nature Preserve during a warm August evening. The insect choruses create an ambient accompaniment for imagined spirit voices.

"What the Bees Know" was written to accompany my visual art contribution to the group exhibition “Mind Gardens” at Caza/Sikes Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio. This composition is based on field recordings of beehives and explores the massed sounds of individual bees.

"A Barn in Halifax" is a soundscape composition comprised of a field recording of my family’s barn in Halifax, Pennsylvania. The creaks and groans of the structure provide a polyphony of percussive sounds to the background ambiance.

"One Afternoon in Randall Hollow" is based on the soundscape of Randall Hollow in Tioga State Forest in Pennsylvania. It is perhaps, one of the quietest locations in the Pennsylvania Wilds. This is a meditation on my memory of that special place.

*Thanks to Dale Myers, Scott Bruno, and Rob McCullough for their valuable assistance.
