Chris Watson

Chris Watson is one of the most acclaimed sound recordists of all time, known for his interest in wildlife and natural phenomena. His recordings of forests are part of the next phase of Unsound’s Ephemera project, named Foris. Centered around the idea of preserving endangered ecosystems in the era of anthropocene, multichannel field recordings of selected habitats from across the planet interconnects with the olfactory concept of a forest created by Geza Schoen, and visuals by MFO. The result is part installation, part show, with a clear narrative shape that is intended to be experienced as a whole.
