I’m not the first person to combine outdoor athletics with experimental music. There have been several others, including a few of the composers involved with Sonic Divide.
So, I’d like to introduce you to the amazing Nat Evans. In 2014 Nat hiked the Pacific Crest Trail (over 2,700 miles) and along the way wrote music and made hundreds of field recordings. He sent many of those recordings to other composers who created music in response to Nat’s epic hike, all of which was coordinated in real time. Nat calls this project the Tortoise and it’s incredibly inspiring. Check out his website and please consider purchasing some of his lovely music.
