David Dunn (1953), a student of Harry Partch, has devoted his musical career
to assemble "Environmental sound works", works that somehow represent the environment
and its biological essence.
The double-CD Music Language and Environment (Innova) collects six
complex compositions that date from 1973 to 1985.
Angels And Insects (Nonsequitur, 1992) summarized his experiments
on computer-based processing, at the border between Karlheinz Stockhausen's electronic music, industrial music and sound montage,
with two ambitious compositions:
Tabula Angelorum Bonorum 49 (that focuses on manipulations of the human
Chaos And The Emergent Mind of the Pond (that focuses on manipulations
of field recordings).
The multimedia installation The Lion in Which the Spirits of the Royal Ancestors Make Their Home (1995)
was less accessible but more imposing.
Why do Whales and Children Sing? (Earth Ear) contains both a book of
essays and a CD of tracks based on natural sounds, and aims to be a guide to
"listening in nature".
