In 2019, there are many artists who identify as Cloud People.
This is a problem for identifiability in the cloud, but it is good to see the pattern arise.
This incarnation began in summer 2001, unwitting to any possible connections to the Chachapoyas of Peru.
These Cloud People are intrinsic to the Pine Barrens of New Jersey.
Cloud People is the name given to musical output by Pine Barrens wanderer Evan Wilder.
Evan Wilder is the earth-bound human from which these tales grow.
"There are powerful forces in the Pine Barrens. I call them Cloud People. Their music is easy to hear" - Evan Wilder
Perhaps personified vehicles to deliver sounds and sights inspired by the evergreen wilds and the skies above during all seasons of the years.
Cloud People offerings have ranged from live music performance; digital music releases The Clouds and related music videos; the Hit Record field recordings; a series of video shorts Wild & Shit; another video series of field recordings called Long Shits; another music series of unsolicited remixes called A Pine Barrens Take, photography, and even the motion picture Evan Wilder's Pine Barrens that has been shown so far only at exclusive local gatherings.
Evan Wilder was invited to join artist, author, activist Tracey Moberly's epic Tweet-Me-Up! installation in The Tanks, Tate Modern for Undercurrent: Young Peoples Festival.
Music collaborations and remix work has included Pablo Sandoz, Yung Coyote, BD1982, Øystein Jørgensen ( Q ) Ambient Fabric, Pop Will Eat Itself, Fairmont, Most Precious Blood, The Killing.
After 18 years, the future still holds more for Cloud People, even at their slow woodland pace.
