Desert Winds : Six Windblown Sound Pieces and Other Works

Scott Smallwood

Desert Winds is a series of six compositions based on the field recordings made in the Wendover/Great Salt Lake Desert Region on the Utah/Nevada border. As a sound artist who utilizes field recordings, I initially was concerned about the high desert winds causing technical difficulties for me. However, I soon discovered that the desert wind was one of the most interesting assets to me in my quest for finding interesting objects/site/sites to record. The sounds recorded were all produced by the wind.

Electrotherapy

Scott Smallwood

"Electrotherapy is a collection of sound pieces based on studio recordings of early 20th-century electrical devices, including induction coils, a diathermy machine, an ultra violet ray oscillator, and a sectorless wimshurst machine. These devices were recorded at close range, and form the basic source material for all tracks on the CD. Thanks to Pete Barvoets, who kindly allowed me to record the devices that are part of his private collection." - Scott Smallwood
