A soothing downtempo vibe that is deeply musical and very unique.

This is a wonderful example of human compound-ingenuity, in that someone at the Park Service had a great idea, which triggered another great idea from Junior Knits. The 'found' sounds at work here, a sort of naturalistic musique concrète, are nothing short of astonishing: the sound of a bear chewing, for example, and other features from the great wide-open.

This scientist of electronic music from Southern California found a strange chemistry between the tones of nature he had discovered, and the electronic textures alive in his laptop. The result is a soothing downtempo vibe that is deeply musical and very unique.

This track is based on a series of recordings of wildlife and natural features made at Yellowstone National Park and released in January 2019 by the United States National Park Service.
