Exploring the intersection of sound libraries and ethnographc recordings, ‘Field Recordings of Mythical Beasts’ is a series of fake field recordings of mythical creatures. The recordings were created using traditional foley techniques originally developed for films. Field Recordings of Mythical Beasts represent explorations of a long forgotten expedition group on its journey to remote regions of the world. The Phoenix, Hydra, Griffin, and Holga have all been documented in their 'natural' environment. - Leicht Records
