Noise and Nature Nathan Evans

Noise and Nature is a soundscape composition consisting of a series of environmental recordings gathered throughout the travels of the composer between the fall of 2011 and the spring of 2012. As well as being conducted in Vancouver BC and the rural gulf island setting of BC’s Hornby Island in the Salish sea, the recordings were gathered abroad on the big island of Hawaii as well as the southern tip of the Baja peninsula in Cabo San Lucas Mexico. The intention of the piece is to present the sounds of ones environment in a relationship that promotes ecology and balance, to demonstrate a form of natural counterpoint within ones acoustic surroundings that demands active listening perspectives, and to draw attention to the ever-present permeance of noise and nature within the worlds constantly shifting yet fluid acoustic environments.
