“Featured Release: The Chestnut Tree Compilation
A 5.5 hour compendium that could be compared to War and Peace in the Creative Commons musical realms. Due to the tireless efforts of Ayn Morgan and John Tocher, this compilation can truly boast of strong variations from artist to artist and track to track, but also the release maintains a focused consistency throughout the five and half hours of music. Considering the size of this release, we find this consistency quite impressive. The compilation bounces across many genres as well, from noise to drone, ambient to experimental.
The Chestnut Tree Compilation includes over 60 artists from 18 countries, collected for the program’s one year anniversary on KPFT, 90.1FM in Houston, Texas. The program also airs on Stillstream.com, the largest ambient radio community on-line. This compilation is released through Buddhist on Fire as a creative commons download.
This project represents a system of artists, community radio and net labels that promote a large range of non-commercial and legally free music. This encourages new, creative and experimental music, listener exploration and free information.”
The Chestnut Tree programs via KPFT and ∃ radio features a mix of conceptual field recordings and electronic music of Brandon Locher from his albums: Conversations 2012, Sleeping Music, Six Prepared Meditations, and more.
Tonight’s TCT program on KPFT will feature “Take to the Trees: Artists for Arbor Day Music Compilation” in celebration of Arbor Day [04.27.2011]. 100% of donations from the album benefit The National Arbor Day Foundation.
Special thanks to Jack Hertz for creating this album.
