hello David

thank you. with 'Soundscape being a sub-genre of EA ... th Acoustic Community
being Key Notes with Whooping Cranes (and other birds) that fly across th
borders with (endangered) songs' i appreciate this information. what sound /
signal were you filtering with your comb to sound like Cranes ?

are you recording th cranes for use in composition ? are you 'just' enjoying
listening ? i heard th cranes on th saving cranes site, but the recording is
very subtle. i will look for more sounds in other libraries re bird songs /
communications. There is a plethora of EA that includes birds and Red Bird is
richer for th allusions. By extension, listening to reason for reasons to
listen etc (insert para-language)

i forgot, you asked about recordings ? for now my work appears in various WWW
and CD compilations - www.musiccentre.ca / www.kalvos.org / www.sonus.ca /
www.deepwireless.org / www.thirdcoastfestival.org/audio_library_2004.asp / /
www.cbc.ca/outfront / www.grrrlswithguitars.com - and will be available 2006
via http://www.sylvi.ca ...

best regards from th west coast of Canada, sylvi macCormac
