about

It started with a field recording, the raw, mono samples somewhat crude because there often wasn't time to set up a full recording rig.

The Mojave Desert ravens don't just "CAW", they have an interesting percussive purr, and RadHaus (radhaus.studio) recorded some of it, along with some other sounds: A dog barking, a distant train, other birds, the wind through a door, etc.

The challenge was this: use those sounds, along with a reading by Rebekkah Hilgraves of Poe’s "The Raven" included, and a handful of very short vocal stems, to build an ambient track, interpreting the material in the artist's own unique way. The artists were not limited to only these sounds; they were also free to add effects, synths, etc.

There was surprising interest in the project from many artists, and the results were spectacular. Two full episodes aired on At Water’s Edge of only Nevermore material, with two more full episodes following not long after.

This project, three years in the making, is the result of that first challenge, followed by later additions from other artists, revisions, additions, subtractions, etc., comprises nine full hours of sounds.
