I am aware about Viktor's LPs that he made long time ago, but I haven't
seen any CDs, is there any...?

There is a French documentary (made 10-15 years ago) about contemporary
music and electroacoustic music, where also K. Viktor told about his
recordings -- unfortunately I don't remember the name of the documentary,
but I have a vhs copy somewhere...

Do you know his contact?

Richard Lerman has done great pieces in this area, recordings based on self
built piezo-microphones... sounds of ants, cactus, windows, trees, birds,
grass, aeolian harps...

Richard's CD 'Within Earreach: Sonic Journeys' is excellent in many ways.
Unfortunately the Cd is out-of-print, but Aureobel label will re-release it
on May 15th (it is launch date of the new label).

best,
petr!
