Chris Watson

Chris Watson, ex-member of Cabaret Voltaire and The Hafler Trio, creates stunning field recordings of animals, habitats and atmospheres from around the world.

This is a track from "Outside The Circle Of Fire"- a collection of 22 minutely detailed close-up recordings of animals, birds and insects in their natural habitats. These recordings leave me speechless.

Chris Watson has also worked on many BBC radio and television productions and recently collaborated with KK NULL and Z'EV.

Here is an article where Chris Watson offers tips on recording birdsongs.

More info and links can be found on his website.

He's also interviewed at great length in the documentary Made in Sheffield: Birth of Electronic Pop, which I highly recommend.
