This piece was inspired by endangered bats, such as the Florida bonneted bat (Eumops floridanus) and the Townsend's big eared bat (Corynorhinus townsendii), and the shocking declines in insect populations that have been reported in recent years. Sounds from the inner workings of an old laptop are combined with night-time field recordings of insects and bats, and tones played on kelp flute, and glass and metal bowls.


from Remembrance Species 2020, released November 30, 2020
Cheryl E. Leonard is a composer, performer, and instrument builder whose works investigate sounds, structures, and objects from the natural world. Her projects cultivate stones, wood, water, ice, sand, shells, feathers, and bones as musical instruments, and feature one-of-a-kind sculptural instruments and field recordings from remote locales. Leonard is fascinated by subtle textures and intricacies of sounds, especially very quiet phenomena. She uses microphones to explore aural worlds within her sound sources, and develops compositions that highlight the unique voices she discovers. Her recent projects focus on climate change and extinction of species.
