"Music is continuous, only listening is intermittent." -- H.D. Thoreau
Notes for REVEIL 2021: streaming from our plot in the St. Mary's Allotments alongside the River Leam, in the town of Royal Leamington Spa in the English Midlands. You may hear song or mistle thrushes, wrens, blackbirds, robins, garden warblers, tits, goldfinches, chiffchaffs, chaffinches, geese, gulls, wood pigeons, cuckoo, woodpecker, humans.
Notes on the intermittent ecopoetics stream: most of the audio on this stream (at other times) is from Leamington Spa: either from the sounds out a window onto my back terrace, between neighbors' gardens on either side that attract lots of birds, or from the banks of the nearby Leam River, or occasionally from anywhere in the Midlands between Coventry and Birmingham, and sometimes from London. I do travel a fair amount and sometimes turn on the stream from far flung locations.
You can find selected field recordings on the ecopoetics SoundCloud page.
