Work continues on a New Jersey Statewide Tour which “has been sporadically underway due to financial and tragic interruption”. Progress can be seen here: From The Past To You.

Also in 2016, we had the release of A Thousand Blended Notes, which is only to be played again in spring.

Messier Object

Signals have been received. A change in course has been detected. Will Messier Object deliver a new recording?

Floods

Quiet and still, like frozen swamps.

Cloud People’s 3rd Hit Record: Spring Peepers

April 5, 2014

Cloud People Hit Record 3 Spring Peepers

Evan Wilder Tweets late last night:

Late. Out in the trees.
Sitting still as spring peepers pierce silence.
I hit record.
40 minutes of peeps takes me to 3am.
A cat crept by.
Very dark amidst light rain and mist.
Winter casually leaves like it never happened.
Back, to report and download recording to prepare for whoever listens to such things. Then sleep.

This is the result – a 12 minute highlight of spring peepers as recorded by Evan Wilder in the Wharton State Forest.
