If someone told you there was music that could lull pillowy-winged moths into a fluttery state of happiness, that the Aurora Borealis can sing even better than you and I, or that the roots of the American elm trees in Central Park are a bustling ensemble waiting for their cue, would you believe them? Matthew Burtner would, and he'd have no trouble proving it on PROFILED FROM ATMOSPHERES, the veteran ecoacoustic composer's sixth release with Ravello Records. Burtner lifts the veil between humanity and it's planet, translating it's messages into an intimate medium invariably understood amongst it's inhabitants. These messages make an urgent case in the titular work Profiled From Atmospheres, a collaborative work between atmospheric sound profiles derived from humanity's top three greenhouse gas emissions and saxophone/percussion duo Michael Weiss and Elizabeth Soflin. The result is an eerie, haunting sonification that serves as a poignant reminder; if we want to continue hearing the songs of the atmosphere and the planet it blankets, it's our responsibility to preserve it.
