Un/natural Fields
Un/natural Fields is a new project in which Michael McDermott and William “Bilwa” Costa juxtapose two solo projects, the organic imagined landscapes of the McDermott’s Echozoo works in progress and Costa’s unnatural field recordings. Together they create an imaginary listening experience akin to magical realism.

Unnatural Field Recordings: Passing Voices

Unnatural Field Recordings: Passing Voices is a composition comprised of urban field recordings and sine-tones. Unnatural field recordings are recordings of public spaces, throughout Europe, US, and Mexico. The focus of the recordings are amplified and digital sounds in everyday urban life. These sounds, combined with passing, incidental, and natural sounds of humans, birds, domestic animals, wind, water, etc., create complex soundscapes.

Sine tones are used to manipulate these recordings, through binaural beats, phasing, oscillation, and panning.
