everglade records is pleased to announce the release of [in], a two-disc set featuring the music of composer and ecologist Erik DeLuca. The set features underwater recordings made in and around South Florida. The two-disc set includes a 5.1-channel composition contained on a Dolby Digital DVD and a stereo mix-down of the composition on a CD.
A combination of Jacques Cousteau, Captain Nemo, Poseidon as a young man, or perhaps a human incarnation of a dolphin-poet, composer Erik DeLuca explores the mysteries of sounds as they exist and propagate underwater... As a companion to Pauline Oliveros' and Stuart Dempster's Deep Listening underground performances, DeLuca's [in] is a vast syphonic work, consisting of numerous samples of natural and man-made sound events, woven into a gorgeous musical tapestry. --Alvin Lucier
[in] reveals fascinating worlds of underwater life forms and related non-living phenomena, weaving them into a rich fabric of auditory data. These are intrinsically mysterious worlds, largely as remote from human experience or signification as the ultima thule revealed through the mirrors of our most powerful telescopes. Erik DeLuca not only allows us to experience these hidden worlds beyond the physical reach of our sensory perception, he does so with impeccable respect for the diverse things that share our multiverse. --David Dunn
