Autumn Leaves

V/A  |  Gruenrekorder  |  GR053  |  2007

Autumn Leaves is an audio compilation that emerges out of a collaboration between Gruenrekorder and Angus Carlyle. The inspiration for the compilation derived from the book "Autumn Leaves:  Sound and the Environment in Artistic Practice" – published by Double Entendre – which Angus Carlyle edited and Gruenrekorder contributed to.

The compilation presents an extremely wide-ranging exploration of the theme of sound and environment. You can hear everything from carefully crafted spoken word pieces, through compelling electro-acoustic compositions, to the purest forms of unedited and unsequenced phonography.

To immerse yourself in this compilation is to hear how others have heard the world and is a chance, perhaps, for you to hear your world in different ways.

"Autumn Leaves", which includes “Silent Landscape No.2” was also a winner at the 2009 Qwartz Electronic Music Award in the category "Best Compilation".
