Philip Sulidae ~ Vandemonian Verplaatsing / Simon Whetham ~ Dry

Two new recordings from Unfathomless approach field recordings from different angles.  One is location based, the other theme based.  Together they form an intricate lattice of sound.

Ai Yamamoto ~ Pan De Sonic ~ Iso / Monster Hurricane Wihajster ~ U nas dobrze, choć trochę strzyka w kolanach

Two new recordings turn the sounds of domestic lockdown into music.  One album is percussive and electronic, the other improvisational and intimate. Together they demonstrate the creativity of artists who are unable to perform in concert halls yet find music

Andrew Littlejohn ~ Shizugawa

This resonant recording scores the aftermath of one disaster, but by extension speaks to those caught in the midst of another.  Recorded in the flattened town of Shizugawa following the devastating tsunami of March 2011, Andrew Littlejohn‘s study traces what was

ACL 2020 ~ Top Ten Field Recording & Soundscape

All Together Now ~ The AMPLIFY Encore

During the pandemic, most festivals either retreated or closed.  AMPLIFY 2020 went in the opposite direction.  We blinked and 50 more tracks, EPs and albums came out, including the best of the bunch!  For six months, the repurposed online festival has
