Cosmo Sheldrake shares a new video in collaboration with Live on Air. He is performing his single Pliocene from a hot air ballon!
Cosmo Sheldrake says: "Here is a live session of Pliocene, performed in a hot air balloon just outside Barcelona. It is a song about deep time and extinction. Many of the sounds that make up the tune are recordings of animals from endangered ecosystems. The beat is primarily made using recordings of fish that the American military made during the cold war. The kick drum is an Oyster Toad Fish, and the snare a Buck Toothed Parrot Fish—both fish that are commonly found in coral reefs. And the main melodic sound is a recording of a raven recorded by the soundscape ecologist Bernie Krause in Algonquin National Park in Canada. Bernie Krause has spent the last 50 years recording sounds from all over the world; many of the inhabitants of the ecosystems he has recorded are now extinct or endangered. The bass is made of a recording of a pig from a city farm in London."
He is also about to start a UK and European tour including a London show at EartH - Tickets avalable HERE.
