Chris Watson is a musician who has been featured on numerous albums, but he is also a renowned audio documentarian who methodically records sounds from the natural environment, or that reflect the natural or human history of specific sites, with breathtaking clarity. His recordings have been widely broadcast on TV and radio and used as source materials for experimental music. Here we present a selection of these recordings, which vividly evoke the captured environments in the mind’s eye of the listener.
