my name is edmund mooney.
i've been an avid lurker on the nature recordists since i joined but have 
yet to post.

i am a composer/electronic musician, acoustic ecologist and am an active 
member of the New York Society for Acoustic Ecology.

i am creating an installation for the upcoming 5 dutch days festival in new 
york city.
the piece i am involved is called Peter Stuyvesant's Ghost and is about 
exploring the idea of the mid 17th century farm of Peter stuyvesant on what 
amounts to most of present day eastern greenwich village.

here's the url to learn more

i'm wondering if anyone from the list who lives within commuting distance 
from new york city would like to help me create an accurate bird and insect 
soundscape as the back drop for my soundscapes involving 4 divergent points 
on the map.

i am exploring four land features,

the east river,
a scating pond
a bowery or orchard
open cultivated fields.

i know that all these four points would have slightly different flora and 
fauna and involve species that are extinct now. these expolorations will 
take the form of 4 10 minute emmersive minute soundscapes
to be listened to whiloe walking to the present day geographical points and 
also at fixed locations.

if anyone wants tro get involved or knows someone who might  please email me

the project would complete by mid november but we wound need to start work 

thanks in advance
