Michael Heumann‘s 2003 album The Island of Sleeping Chickens is out of print. Here’s the new liner note blurb:
Imagine that chickens are not the small, utterly common, utterly mundane creatures we all know and eat. Imagine instead that they are creatures living alone, on their own island, far away from all us humans. Now imagine that California-based electronic artist Michael Heumann has visited this island (don’t worry, he was invited) and taken some field recordings of their natural habitat. Imagine that!
