Online PR News – 24-August-2013 – London, UK – PLAY THE SOUND OF THE NORTH POLE - BBC’S CHRIS WATSON MAKES ‘VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT’

Acclaimed nature & wildlife sound recordist Chris Watson is behind an amazing 'virtual' musical instrument - a piece of software that allows the user to play music created with sounds from the North Pole, the Kalahari Desert, Venezuelan swamps and more.
The 'virtual musical instrument' - known as Geosonics - was developed with London sound-software company Soniccouture. They first contacted Watson - known for his BAFTA award winning work on BBC's Frozen Planet and Springwatch - in 2011, after hearing some of Chris' recordings made using huge expanses of wire in remote parts of Australia.

James from Soniccouture says : 'We were privileged to work with Chris because we wanted to create sounds with a very real, natural dimension to them. With Chris we had access to sounds that you literally can't get anywhere else - he has crawled inside glaciers and fried himself in the desert for these recordings!'
