Biophony is a term introduced by soundscape ecologist, Bernie Krauss, who in 1998, first began to express the soundscape in terms of its acoustic sources. The biophony refers t the collective acoustic signatures generated by all sound producing organisms in a given habitat at a given moment.
The biophosmos extends this idea to include all possible habitats, at any point in time, by both organic and inorganic means. For music to live and breathe it needs to evolve with its environment. As technology continues to evolve the worlds of acoustic and electronic sound manipulation become ever more fluid. This album is both tribute and a re-imagining of some of Chick Corea's greatest compositions through a modern lends of Pointless Beauty production.
