Of Natural Magic and the Breathing of Trees

by Robert Scott Thompson



Two versions of the 2016 acousmatic composition "Of Natural Magic and the Breathing of Trees" composed in October of 2016 at the Atlantic Center for the Arts. This composition was created using both acoustic and synthetic sound sources and is mixed in high-order ambisonics. Originally created in octophonic surround (8-channels), the stereo version retains the depth and dimension of the multi-channel version through encoding for ambisonics in two-channels.

The first version of the work is a condensed forming of the structures of the composition and is just under 20 minutes. The second version presented is the "original" 30-minute version.
