Boomkat Product Review:
Brian Eno, Martyn Ware, Coldcut, Matthew Dear, Kate Simko, Osunlade, Iggor Cavalera, Fingathing, Bræv and many more yield new music from field recordings made in Colombia’s neotropical forests
“Cucusonic is an album created by a collaborative collective of Colombian bio-scientists, anthropologists, and musicians – partnered with University of Manchester’s ‘Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology’ and charity In Place of War.
The team set up a network of diverse local communities to capture sounds and stories from the Colombian Neotropical forests, inviting high profile artists and producers to create tracks from these field recordings. The aim of the project, and the resulting album, is to raise awareness about the biodiversity of Colombia, and its importance globally – by translating natural soundscape recordings and bio-acoustic data into new music.”
