  • High Desert Chainsaw contains the many sounds of a chainsaw as it chews through live oak tree trunks and branches.

      Field Recording Values

      An astonishing number of natural soundscapes are disappearing. I work to preserve as many as I can. 

      Mastering Rules

      I don't "photoshop" my nature sounds and present them as natural soundscapes. If I do remove something, it's marked in the metadata. Otherwise, it's a natural soundscape! Read more – here
