Donald Hugh's work is the sound of the natural world dissected and recombined. He draws heavily from natural sound worlds, sampling and then refracting the sounds of real world environments, people, objects and natural settings.
The raw materials for “Coast” and “Hymn” were recorded on a field trip to the remote Pacific, where Don sampled the sounds of the people, flora and fauna of the Cook Islands. Those natural sounds fuse with musical samples and instrumental performance to form delicate and playful sonic meditations.
Donald Hugh's mesmerising soundscapes hum with electric energy. They are sonic explorations at once ambitious and sensitive, the product of an agile and rapidly expanding young mind.
