Field Works: Ultrasonic [Streaming]

Every Sunday morning, I listen to this wonderful show on KEXP.org called Pacific Notions.
It showcases the best in modern-classical and ambient music, with explorations into downtempo, new age, post-rock, and other atmospheric styles.
Why not feature this compilation which is right up this alley.
Indianapolis musician Stuart Hyatt who goes by Field Works released this compilation called Ultrasonic which is out on Temporary Residence.



About the compilation:
Ultrasonic is perhaps the first-ever album to use the echolocations of bats as compositional source material.
For this special album, Hyatt has assembled an extraordinary group of contributors: Eluvium, Christina Vantzou, Sarah Davachi, Ben Lukas Boysen, Machinefabriek, Mary Lattimore, Felicia Atkinson, Noveller, Chihei Hatakeyama, John Also Bennett, Kelly Moran, Taylor Deupree, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Julien Marchal, and Player Piano.
Ultrasonic is part of a broader storytelling project about the federally endangered Indiana Bat. Generously funded by the IUPUI Arts & Humanities Institute and the National Geographic Society, each album contains an official printed booklet of The Endangered Species Act of 1973.
Ultrasonic is a unique one that lets you wind down and let go of your anxieties.
